Truce

Two days of relentless rain,  the landscape was transformed with a low-lying fog this morning.
We were offered several bushels of pears, far more than we could use. Many were bruised and past their sell-by date, and so we offered some to the deer.
A peace-offering of sorts, leave our flowers and bushes alone.........enjoy a treat.
Sounds reasonable .

How fun having deer in your back yard. Only the rabbits and squirrels here.... and sometimes a coon or possum. When the pears are gone, do you think they will stick to their end of the bargain?

Great pictures, Jo. I really hope the deer will leave your plants and flowers alone, but I just don't know. They are major pests around here, but I still enjoy seeing the families when they happen through. Of course, they're not eating my flowers at the moment, either. I'm sure I wouldn't enjoy seeing them in that case. ;)

Have a great week, Jo!

Hugs,

Denise

How thoughtful of you! I've done a similar thing from time to time, and love seeing the deer enjoy their treat!

We don't have deer issues here because of our dogs, but I do love seeing them in the fields. They are a mystical creature are they not?

Wonderful pictures of those gentle (and hungry) creatures. We have them around here but the fence keeps them out of the garden. So far. :-)

I bet you were the talk of the forest with an open banquet table. Deer are so great to see but bad about eating so many things. My rabbits keep eating back my young sedum. I guess I will have to put a cage on it.
