I got home a bit ago, walked into the kitchen to start water for tea, looked out the window into the back yard. Noticed that 2 young deer were present – and that they were finally shedding their winter coats – so we know it will warm up soon!
THEN I noticed that one was standing in the veggie garden – and it was munching on my favorite greens. I opened the back door – neither one moved, stuck my head out – still no one moved. So I stepped clear out and told Young Deer 1 to ‘Step Away from the Swiss Chard.’ And then he did, but not far – just over to some bushes he was quite welcome to dine on.
And then I laughed.
