Oh Deer.....

I have spring fever....... {in my whiney voice}

I thought I'd share more of our wonderful country living with you.
Hubby and I enjoy feeding the wildlife.

We have wild turkeys, deer, coons, possum, birds, you name it, visit our yard periodically!
I think the deer are our favorites to watch!
We can sit at the dinning room table and watch them eat and frolic about the yard!

The feeder shown is about 20 yards from the side porch, close enough that we can really enjoy them!
The deer are so used to us that we can walk out on the porch and not freighten them away!

This winter we have had well over 30 deer at the feeder at one time.

{enlarge the picture}
They are such beautiful creatures!
It's funny when the timer goes off for the feeder to shoot corn out the deer come running out of the woods as if someone was ringing the dinner bell!
A few are preggo so we are excited to see their babies this spring!

Have a happy day,

As much as I love the snow, I agree with you.

However, it has been such a beatiful winter.

I don't know how you snow people do it? I will send warmer weather your way Dolly.

Michelle said...

You are so lucky! I could sit and watch those deer all day.

Lori said...

Oh Dolly what a beautiful site!! What I wouldn't give to have the country life, but saddly between John and mines health we'll just have to stay in the city. I guess I should have moved years ago before homes became outrageously priced! Enjoy some deer for me! Love, Lori

Angela said...

Oh Dolly,
That is the coolest picture of the deer eating. My kids would be nuts if that happened here in our backyard.
We had a few snow flurries this past weekend that lasted all of 15 min. Now we have 73degree weather, go figure.

Dolly, That picture is amazing. I have to agree though about the snow. It is time for spring sunshine and flowers. I hope they come to you soon. Susan

M&Co said...

Wow sooo many deers! Beautiful! We used to have them in the garden when I grew up, but my mum hated them as they ate all her flowers ;-)

Hi Dolly,
I know what you mean about snow. We have had so much in Toronto, I have cabin fever.
I loved seeing your deer. What a beautiful view you have each day.

awesome picture of your dear deer! I think its illegal to feed them here. but people do anyways.. there was a lady in buffalo arrested because she kept feeding them in a public park afer being repeatedly warned not too.. Maybe its only illegal in parks..
iN anycase.. We've had deer in our yard a couple times.. we've had whopping cranes, giant mud turtles, owls, raccoons, possums, lost baby cows... Ha!
well have a good week Dolly!

Back Through Time said...

Bertie said...

I see you've taken the bird bath away and are just feeding them on the ground this year. What an awesome sight!!!

Dear Dolly, I love it that you feed the deer. It was such a long hard winter I'm sure they are thankful. I have just recently acquired two possums- I just love them! Our neighbor keeps trying to shoot them so I am feeding them to keep them close and our of harm's way. Spring will come! Take care, Stephanie
