Yes- that is a deer. On our lower driveway, quite at home, in no hurry.
Friend of all small boys who hate to eat anything green- because they get there first.
I really must get round to putting up the gates…
We have a few garden visitors.
A few vegetable munchers.
A few bark strippers.
The odd shy eye that catches the sweep of headlights.
That are so hard to resent,
Because they are lovely.
So this morning, I peeked through a hedge with my camera, and there she was. Shy and still, with eyes that draw you in, and ears alert for a million dangers…
So, it is worth investing in a few well placed gates, but the loss of some shrubs and the odd cabbage, the shredding of my Gunera- these things I will bear to be so close to such creatures…
