Looking out of the bedroom window first thing in the morning for the last few weeks I have seen this young deer foraging in the orchard. I think it has been attracted by the apple drop. It spends a fair bit of time nibbling its own hide and that reminds me of the problems of deer ticks. My smooth fox-terrier was always very downcast during her post-walk tick inspection! Because she liked to poke her nose into everything she was susceptible to getting ticks attached to her head and ears. Horrid things! Today I found incriminating hoof marks in my vegetable beds, the deer has obviously jumped the fence. Oh dear, trouble ahead.
The hedges are growing like mad in all this rain. My efforts at topiary were in need of attention.
Himself was amused and went to get the camera.
The pheasant was getting out of control. (So is my hair!)
When I had finished Himself made some improvements.
That's men for you!
