Hello and Shoo!

Last Friday we were mowing the lawns in the morning and were in a rush to finish up before the rains came. We put all the equipment away and later in the evening we noticed a deer in the yard. We have never had deer in the backyard because it is totally fenced off. We realized we had forgotten to close the gate in the back where we have started a compost pile on the other side of the fence.

The deer seemed quite delighted with all the new things in our yard that it could nibble on.

When the deer began to eat our clematis it was time to shoo it away.

My Dear had to go out and scare the unwelcome deer back to the gate and out of the yard.

We secured the gate again and the deer went off to wherever the deer go in the evening.

It’s been nice having a relatively secured back area but today Dear took down 40 feet of our fence in the front because we are having a space prepared for his future shop to be built on. I might be chasing more unwelcome deer away from our clematis, soon.

If you look through the tree you’ll see the fence sections Dear has taken down already. Our backyard is free range now.

On Monday I got to enjoy both our grandchildren. Addy is getting more and more articulate and it’s fun to hear her full sentences. Jaymison is still having some digestive and elimination issues but he’s gaining weight and doing better. We’ve had some periods of heavy rain through the weekend. We are warming up and expected to go up 10 degrees tomorrow. I’m sure we’ll be putting our Heat Pump to good use. Hope you all have a good week.

  1. Hello, cute photos of the deer. He/she was enjoying a new place to eat in your yard. I guess with the fence down, the deer will be bringing back the family for a meal too. Nice update the kiddies, I am glad they are doing well. Enjoy your day, wishing you a happy new week!

  2. The deer must have enjoyed all the tasty treats in your yard.
    We planted hostas out back just so the deer would come close to the house. Wouldn’t you know that have been staying away from it and just eating stuff in the woods!!

  3. Your yard will be very tempting for the deer. They’re lovely creatures, but best seen in their own environment in the woods. Enjoy your continued times with your little grandchildren.
