Under the Pear Tree


This morning DH called me downstairs. Standing just 10 feet from the back patio was a beautiful deer. She stood quietly as a queen surveying her subjects. We had wondered if there might be deer nearby because we back onto a creek. Yet it is just a small area that is bordered on roads and neighborhoods. How doesn't make a difference in the excitement and wonder experienced.

What a beautiful site! She is probably wondering what you are doing on her property!

Give me a holler when she gains a few pounds, she'll be great for a BBQ!

It's that time of year when they wonder further afield looking for a mate. I'm surprised that you have deer in your garden. I guess the creek draws them.

Deer are so beautiful. We have woods right by our house and we get a lot of deer. We actually had 5 in our yard at one time! The coolest sight, though, was a hawk just sitting there on our back lawn.
