There must be an advertisement written in “deer tongue” somewhere close by:
“Calling all deer! Come to our yard! It’s the perfect vacation spot for the entire
Graze peacefully under the trees.
Bask in the sun while watching the little ones play.
Take a dip in the creek then have mom clean you off, creek side.
Come and go as you please because the dogs only watch
No barking, a quiet haven.
So come to our home, all you deer. Why bother taking a hike up to the Adirondacks where there might be more food, more water, more shelter? It’s just so much more fun to stay in THIS yard and leave deer poop for our people and our dogs to “enjoy”. “
It was cute when there was one baby. Then there were two baby deer. The mom and two babes wandered around for a while, harassing Shane and Zoey, then they found different stomping ground. Now they’re back AND they brought the EXTENDED family. Are we lucky or what?!!!! I really hope they find another home very soon. *Shane never knew the deer were lurking. Zoey never made a sound, just watched while Shane snoozed by the side door.
This is a breakfast, snack, and a completely pleasing dessert. It doesn’t matter which way or when you eat it, it’s just plain delicious. Moist, sweet, flavorful.
