Velvet Buck

As we were finishing dinner tonight, we had some visitors join us. Two young bucks, all dressed in new velvet, stepped into the yard to graze. While I enjoy watching the deer and think they’re beautiful, I really hate how they decimate my gardens. When we first moved  here I spent a lot of time and money planting various types of perennials and shrubs, not realizing that I was providing a cornucopia of edibles for the resident deer population. I quickly learned that even planters sitting on my front porch were at risk, as the deer boldly walked right up the stairs to devour the delicacies.

Nevertheless, I still admire them from a distance, and on a lovely spring evening they provided a nice backdrop to the approaching darkness and a peaceful evening.
