August break: Alive

Deer

Deer

This deer comes into my parents garden – this is it on the neighbouring plot.

Initially they were quite excited about it, but then they realised it eats rosebuds. My mum is really into roses and has got all these fancy types (breeds? species?) that she won’t get to enjoy because they’re now deer food. My mum, as well as spraying the plants with buttermilk, has made some signs for the deer. Just in case it can read and is law abiding! My parents are the kind of people that usually get residential landscaping projects at home, they simply love to have beautiful gardens

    People here, in south Mississippi, swear by human hair spread around anywhere you don’t want deer. I don’t know if that actually works, but I do know hardcore hunters won’t bathe or wear deodorant before a hunting trip. Catherine

    Haha, the signs are so very cute… It reminds me of my aunt who left a “note” for probable thieves where she said she was poor..
