Meet our Emmie!

This little beauty is Emmie, one of our resident deer. Yes, you've heard me blog furiously about plants pulled out and eaten to the nubs, but the severe drought has softened my heart.

We are seeing her from our breakfast room where she has come to nibble on a few seeds from the bird feeders and to get a drink of water from the birdbath that's just right behind her. I'm also keeping a giant dog bowl of water out there for her and her sister Lulu.
After her nice drink, she headed back to the septic field behind the woods to have an afternoon snack of some well fertilized grass. She really likes the grass because it's greener than many of her other food sources these days.

I'm thinking about feeding her deer corn. Just thinking. I'll let you know how that turns out in my brain!
