Our Pet Deer
I thought after leaving Berry, where the deer to student ratio was 4 to 1, that I would never again come into such close contact with deer again. Little did I know that I would one day live in Peachtree Corners, where the deer roam free. We have evidenced deer being on our property many times due to things like all of our winter annuals being eaten and dug up throughout the winter. Also, this spring, our lilies and hostas were completely devoured down to the nubs. It was a sad morning that day. We also often spot them at night crossing our street. But today took the cake. I was doing dishes and looked out our kitchen window to our backyard. There, about 20 feet away was a huge doe. It startled me at first. We have a fenced in backyard, so it was especially odd. Allen urged me to take some photos. So, I thought it would also be worthy of a blog.
