Hmpf!

Really glad we bought plants that were deer resistant...


All the white-grey haze is smoke from the fires in California. 
We've had it for days.

I would love to be sitting in one of those chairs, quietly watching them as they quietly watch me...

Sans deer aggravating one's mental state, it seems a lovely place for a morning cuppa coffee.

This looks so inviting..

Wow, it's amazing they come so close.

Nothing like nature in your own back yard. :) Deer are plentiful in my area of Maine, as the campus where I work is obviously a "no hunting" zone, and the deer know to go where it's safe! It's not uncommon to see them mulling about on the commons, and we've had a few get spooked and jump into buildings.

Heavenly!

Kelly said...

Wow! Can't believe you can see the smoke from where you are!

Looks like such a beautiful place to hang out in the morning...

Victoria said...

Holy smokes, that's amazing!

What a tranquil spot! Looks like deer buffet. :)

We have friends up in Seattle, Washington who can see the smoke from the California fires, too.

We need a strong wind to blow it all away!

I know they shouldn't be eating your plants but they are so sweet!

Want to borrow one of our neighborhood cougars?? LOL Our deer population has dwindled to near zero this year.....or maybe they all just wandered over to Tumalo! :)

melroska said...

these fires are too much! we're smoke free now, I hope you are soon!

BaldyLocks said...

It looks like your deer resistant plants are not quite functioning properly. Maybe they were switched with some deer attracting plants?

Myself, I still let the deer do all the gardening around my house.

That smoke is scary. I hope it goes away soon.

Very good...we didn't plant deer resistant plants and have a major problem!! Come over and look at my two bucks! Scroll down a little. I set up a scarcrow and a little radio with Rush and Dr. Laura blarring!! :) It has worked.

Oh my, we suffer the same thing here! I cannot list how many times we've planted things only to find them munched on (or bitten off) the very next day by the local deer... Sigh.

Hey Harriet said...

What a lovely view from your deck! I wish I had deers (or is the plural just 'deer' like fish...) roaming my yard :)

Shame about all the icky smoke though :(

Patrizia said...

WOW that is cool, but sad for your plants I guess, hehe.

Kathy said...

I know that the deer must be aggravating to all of your work, but honestly, what a joy to wake up and see that. It's one of the reasons why Oregon is one of my most favorite places (as is No Cal). To see wildlife up close is one of the greatest joys and a stamp of God's beauty. Lucky you. Really.

Despite the eating up of plants, you've got to pinch yourself at times when you see their magnificent faces!!! I'm jealous--truly!!!
(PS the fires are so sad. Big Sur is such a magical place)

littlebird said...

wow they are really bold aren't they?

Chucka Stone Designs said...

Wow, I can not believe you are getting that smoke so far up the coast. I feel so bad for all those folks & hope the fires are extinguished soon!

Amazing how close you can get to those deer, even though they are snacking they are pretty :)
