Afternoon tea time is the ladies' turn. I have to admit that they are appealing. However, deer do a great deal of damage to our landscape over winter. We've lost several fruit trees and Scots Pine to their habit of stripping bark in the winter.
When I opened the back door and barked at them, I was surprised to find there were six deer back there, both does and stags, busy denuding the landscape.
I find barking like a dog is the only way to get them to move away from the garden. Doesn't help for long, though. They just move to the shelter belt and are back in a few minutes, chomping away.
Anyone for some fresh venison?
