Not reindeer, but…


We had a small herd of deer come into our yard this week. We’ve had deer in the neighbor’s yards before (Backyard Deer), but with our dogs, this is the first time in years that they’ve come into ours. The recent cold weather has kept the snow from recent storms on the ground longer than usual, which means that the deer had a harder time getting to the grass. Hunger made them a little bolder than usual, and prompted the visits to our garden for  leftovers. We kept the dogs inside, and were happy to share.

I hope that you get many wonderful unexpected visitors this season. Merry Christmas!
