A few years ago we fenced in our backyard. The main reason for doing that was that we had too many deer visiting our yard and eating plants from our garden, both veggie and flowers. I have missed seeing their beautiful presence out and about as there was a certain beauty to look out and see these graceful creatures wandering around our yard.
Since the fencing in my husband has devoted much of his gardening time to growing and developing his beautiful Hosta plants. One area of our yard is on a hillside which we have named Hosta Hill.
Yesterday morning I looked out and saw movement in Bird Alley. A quick glance out told me that it was no bird I was seeing as I had seen a glimpse of a sturdy brown leg! A Deer in our yard! I quickly grabbed my camera and hurriedly put on a pair of shoes and I went out to investigate! Yes! there was a deer in our garden and it didn't seem to remember how to get out. I found it at our veggie garden section near our Tory Gate.
So all was well that ended well. I did not see the deer leave as there are several ares in our backyard and I had though it was still in Bird Alley but there was no deer there anymore when I checked that area out. But I did find the gate that had been left open in error. It was our welcome gate with the words "Welcome" on it. No, not really meant to be a welcome to deer.
Have a wonderful day everyone. It seems like it will be a good day here to look for snapping turtles laying their eggs as it is now the season for that. Tomorrow's post will be about Snapping Turtles that I have found in our community this month.
