The last paragraph of my June 11, 2012 post I mentioned looking out the kitchen window and seeing a deer happily munching on my Stella d’oro daylillies. I did not have the presence of mind to get my camera for a photo shot (was so upset at the sight I slammed hard on the window to scare it away).
Looked out the window this moring and guess who was having breakfast? You guessed it.
This time I was calmer, no sense getting upset, got my camera and went to the backyard to get a good photo. I was worried that the sound of opening the door would cause the intruder to get scared and run away. But no, it raised its head at the sound looked straight at me and posed. Oh yes, it just stood there posing even as I walk towards it and remained in that pose, very still, for quite a few minutes.
As you can see from the above photo the Stella d’oro daylillies on the lower left has no flowers.
My one and only rose bush
Had to give away all the others as the deer kept eating the leaves and the flowers. This one is around because it is taller than the door (at right) and the deer cannot reach that height.
