Deer in the garden

Sorry for being so quiet lately - we've had a few days without broadband, as a result of switching supplier. Thankfully we're up and running again now. More on that another day, but for now, here are some pictures of a deer happily settled in our garden earlier this week. They've been around a lot lately, munching at the new spring growth in the garden. Beautiful - but we are going to have to sort out some decent fencing before I get going with my vegetable patch again.

Sweet!

What a hairy deer. Ours are more short-haired. Yes, you will be feeding them a buffet of good stuff without a fence!

Hello Rachel

Your garden has a good spirit when the deer feels at home and trusts to lie there in safety.
Hope the fence keeps him where he belongs.

They are certainly shaggy, but I guess that's the winter coat. Be sure to make the fence high - thy're really very athletic!

Mm, that's what I thought - hope you weren't growing anything essential in the garden! :) Have a nice Easter, Rachel.

Yeah, I bet the deer wreaks havoc with your foliage! So pretty though...and your deer are much darker than what we see around here~ Have a great week!

Thanks for sharing the deer images Rachel. We see the deer herds more in the fall and winter; when the weather warms they find better places around here to eat and hide.

How lovely! The nearest we get to wildlife here are a few tiny ladybirds that get in and the queen wasps who over-wintered in our roof!

What beautiful photos! I know, ideally they wouldn't be in your garden, but still what a treat to have them visit.

Beautiful. More than makes up for missing you a while! Thanks for.

What a lovely garden setting! The daffs are safe but they love to munch on tulips. Good luck with the fencing.

How beautiful. Happy Easter Monday to you.

I have not seen such deer... even in Australia where most reside on deer farms. Kangaroos are prolific here. Thankyou for the glimpse.
