Deer One

We have a deer wandering through our yard right now. We first spotted her in the neighbor's yard. She was trying to get a drink from the neighbor's pond. She couldn't quite negotiate the rocks, though.

Our girls are fascinated. They have been standing at the window since we first sighted the deer. They report every movement like sports announcers. "She's in our yard eating the grass!" "She's back in Sue's yard by the pond!" "She's in Steve's yard. I hope they don't let the dog out!"

A lot of the neighbors complain about the deer eating their plants, bushes, and trees. It seems this deer doesn't like much in our yard. She hasn't tried to eat the sedum, evergreens, ornamental grasses or tree bark. She only ate a bit of the grass.

I don't know how long she'll stay, but the girls will be talking about this for a long, long time.
