    One of the neighborhood deer wonders why (s)he can't get in our yard anymore.

    We have a worker fencing in the back of the property for the ducks.
    I hope the deer respect the fence, though they could leap it if they wanted to.

    Thanks, Dawn. I took them from my third floor sewing room tower. [​IMG] I can see a lot from up here.

    As pretty as deer are they are murder on a garden. I had a bunch that came down out out the hills and ate every last rose bush - and that is going some - I have 32.

    Agreed, Debi!

    I wish I had my camera out yesterday when a Bald Eagle flew past my tower window in a hailstorm. He was probably wondering why he was being pinged on his head while minding his own bizness.

    We've been here in Hollyweird for 5 years, and never saw a deer, only one hoofprint. The other day I startled 2 behind the shop. The garden is not fenced, but they haven't touched it. [​IMG]


    Knocking on wood now. Terrie, is that the new place? With the 3rd story sewing tower? Wow, very nice!

    Just noticed. I didn't know Oregon was "almost in Canada".

    or did you move again?
