Garden Series 4 "Deer"
In spring, young deer usually wander around my backyard looking for food, but this summer has been so hot and dry that I've seen them drinking from our pond. The water level is so low now that a whole family of deer can walk along the inside edge of the pond. Now a few months later, I'm sometimes surprised to discover a young deer has grown into a buck. The deer are cute and always stare at us, but I hate them for eating my beautiful flowers, plants and young trees.
