Deer on the doorstep (and in the veg patch…)


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…
