Some deer friends stopped by Chez Herd for a little visit, but they didn’t give us very high marks for the hospitality of our greeting.
Hu-Dad noticed last week the wild blackberry bushes growing around the edge of our field were full of berries. As the berries ripen, various creatures drift out of the woods for the tasty snack. This is the time of year we see the most bears hanging around because of nature’s berry buffet, but Hu-Dad was a little surprised to see this pair of deer.
Why surprise? While the three younger boys were snoozing inside the house, Kiska, Qannik and Cheoah were all outside. And, apparently, sound asleep because none of the three noticed our visitors. But as soon as they did see them, the race to say hello erupted.
