Yes, I have a tasty garden! At least the deer seem to think so! 🙂 Because the deer like my garden so much, most of what I have planted are deer proof or deer resistant plants. There is a difference between the two. The deer proof plants they just will not touch, like my rosemary. The deer resistant plants are plants that the deer will not normally eat, but they will eat if they are hungry enough. I caught a few photos of one such deer who actually nibbled on the rosemary only to spit it out! So for today, I share with you photos of this lovely doe! The captions speak for themselves! Enjoy!

After finishing my post yesterday morning, I headed off to take care of my morning abulations. In yesterdays post I had made the following statement: “We never know what will visit us in our yard! What will stroll by next?” Little did I know that the next critter visiting us would be right outside the bedroom window! There were two bucks munching on the tree trimmings out back! Now this series of photos are a bit blurry as I was taking them through screened and dirty windows, and it was raining. We definitely have to wash our windows! Enjoy!

By the time I grabbed my camera and ran back to take photos, one of the bucks had moved on. Looking out the window, here is what I saw.

Some sound had captured the attention of this buck and he turned to see what it was.

I wanted to head outdoors but it was raining, so I headed down to the basement where I caught this next series of photos.

The deer heard the sound again and turned to look.

The deer started to investigate the sound.

Time to investigate!

He headed to the end of the fencing of our fruit orchard. In the background you will see the other critter who caused the sound!

Yes it is a black cat! The cat started to head towards the deer.

What I was unable to capture as it happened so quickly was the cat chased off the deer! It was quite amazing to see that little bit of fluff running after the deer, and the deer hightailing it!

Well, I hope that you enjoyed this post! Enjoy your Wednesday and thank you for visiting with me today!
