#!@#!@# those cute deers. They came into the
yard and ate off about fifty of my new tulips that
were planted in a new bed along the woods that
I worked up last Fall. Makes me so mad.
I have Tulips in my other beds and they never
bothered them before so I thought they would leave these
alone too. Not! That is what I get for thinking.
These are not the guilty varmints that ate my the
Tulips but a deer is a deer. Or is it? These pictures
were given to me by a relative and they are not to clear.
They are copies and it was a cloudy day.
Notice anything strange about the one doe?
She looks like a very skinny-necked cow that
is all spotted. I tried to get pictures of her for
about the four years that she was around here
but could never get close enough.
She is not all albino but she sure looks strange.
She was around the area for four years and always
had twin babies every year and none of them got the
messed up genes that she had.
Last Fall a local hunter shot her during deer
hunting season and everyone here in the area
was really ticked off at him.
I am a country girl and believe in keeping the
populations thinned down and use to hunt so
we were not aggravated that he shot a deer but
we kind of liked having her around to watch over
Some eww and ahh when they see deers but they can
cause a lot of damage here in the farm lands.
My parents had to put a electric fence around their
garden to keep them from eating everything.
I sure do not want them eating my flowers no
matter how cute the little fawns may be.
So I may have to make up an old lady scarecrow
to put by the bed with some deer be gone on her.
Does anyone know of a good spray?
I have seen pictures of deers that were all white but I
have not saw any marked like she was.
The Forsythia bushes are blooming now. They
really brighten up the scenery. These were by an
old rambled house that I passed while out taking
a ride around the country side to see what was in
bloom. While I was in the city this week so many trees
were in bloom but out in the country there is not much
happening yet. The heat from buildings in the city
must cause everything to bloom sooner.
We have had one snow since the Forsythia starting
blooming so we are due two more.
We are suppose to have colder weather coming in
the first of the week with snow showers so we will
see if the old saying "Three more snows after the Forsythia
blooms" comes to pass.
I can live with the old saying being completely wrong
and forget all about more snow. Would not hurt my
feelings at all.
