We usually see deer on the property every day.  For the past couple of weeks we have seen three that seem to be staying together.  Today the group has grown to five.  That’s a record number for us, or at least that we have noticed. They stayed quite a while today, almost 45 minutes.  The spring grass must be pretty tasty!

So far the 600′ of deer fence has worked well.  The dog hasn’t escaped and the deer haven’t got in.  That’s good because we will be planting some new bushes and flowers soon and as much as they are nice to look at we don’t really want to set up a buffet of green house plants for them.

We have heard that you know you are officially a local when you stop taking pictures of deer.  I guess I am still a newcomer then.
