Deer in my Backyard

Aren't they adorable?  There is a herd of deer that usually stay in the wooded area but these two were caught red-handed in my backyard.  I love looking at their serene faces and the gentle way they graze, BUT this area that they are in is where the newly planned garden will be turned over as soon as the weather breaks.

Bad habits are hard to break so I suspect a lot of trouble this summer.  Hmmmm.  I have my ways which are not harmful to the deer, they might just wish they had picked on someone else before the summer is over!

But just look at those faces!  Isn't the little one sweet?  I might be a little more gentle than I at first thought.
Do you think deer are trouble or fun to watch or both?

Both. I love watching them, but it's frustrating when they're in the yard picking on my few plants that seem to make it past the grasshoppers. My dog used to help before she died. She loved chasing them out just past the fence. Then they'd stop and there would be a staring match between the deer and Cheyenne. :) I've heard hair clippings will help deter deer, but I haven't had a chance to get any from my hairdresser and try them. Hope they don't destroy your new garden plot this summer.

For me, I love to watch them, but I don't have them in my yard. For someone who loves flowers and veggies, I imagine they could become a nuisance. But they really are CUTE!

We don't get deer in our yard. I find them fascinating to watch though!
