Since the calendar still says its Winter, I’ll happily turn over photographic duties for the day to my Mom, who sent along these great photos from Long Lake, NY.
In the Adirondacks, they clearly know from winter.)
The deer came at first for seed from the bird feeders. They came on their own, or in pairs. But now they are returning for the bits of apple they’ve also been finding out the back door.
And on this day, there were six.
With his forage-pruning of it’s lower branches, this little deer seems to be answering the gardener’s question about why this Korean lilac only blossoms way up in the air.
Amongst these photos, there are deer seen out windows in every direction. It’s sort of funny, if you know the views.
It’s pretty clear they’ve got Mom and Dad surrounded, and I can only hope the supply of apples and birdseed doesn’t run out before spring!
