Our part of Tennessee has been showered with an abundance of wild life this year.
As I was preparing my breakfast yesterday morning about 9:30, I opened the blinds to view the gardens and~~ what to my wondering eyes should appear, but two of the most beautiful little female deer.~~
Mt first thought was how lovely they are, and my next thought was how destructive they can be to a garden.
I didn't wish to chase them away until I could photograph them, but if you know anything about deer, then you know they have exceptional senses...they can hear you long before they see you.
I did manage to get out the back door with the camera, and as soon as I rounded the corner, they sensed me, even though they couldn't see me.
You can see by the stance they were ready to run...and so they did. It was amazing to see them leap into the air ond over a 6ft fence.
Most of the beds are covered this time of year and some are very dormant, but I was fearful for my turnip green patch...but all is well....will they return? No doubt!
Sometimes sharing can be be a bummer..
Hope your Sunday was peaceful .
