They are very sweet, these little deer, but they can be a huge nuisance to the landscaping!
What Sandy said. They're darling to look at, but oh, the havoc they can wreak.
Oh how sweet..it's hard to be mad when you look at that innocent little face!!
He's so adorable. Of course, I guess I'd be frustrated if it were my flowers.
Awww, the deer are indeed beautiful but they do love to chomp on everything in site. We had that happen to our garden and our flowers one year before we put up the fence - the rabbits went to town.
Bambi is gorgeous!Sorry about your flowers.
We have so many deer in DC I am ready to buy a gun. Then it would be flowers (and venison) for everyone. Seriously, they are everywhere.
They are beautiful but they are a nuisance with your trees and flowers. How about using that deer deterrent - not tonight deer, I think it's called. Something cutesy-poo like that anyway.
They look so sweet, but I imagine it is annoying to lose all your flowers. Still, I can't help but like them.
Oh what a darling! I would be quite happy to go without flowers to have such a beautiful guest stop by! Do they eat hosta?Perfect book for this time of year in the Edith Wharton!
Caught red handed! My parent's always have deer in their yard and I love to watch them.
Thanks, everyone. Bambi is certainly adorable, but she's done quite a job on the landscape this year!Kaye - I've never looked into deer detergent, but it's probably time. Not tonight deer - LOL!Darlene - Hosta seems to be the favorite. Those lavender flowers were the first to go!
BAMBI!! Funny, I saw two young males dash across a busy road on my way home from work today. They must have been about a year old; they already had racks on their heads. One of them gave me a very serious look.When you see them in deepest darkest suburbia, you know how little "habitat" they have left. Which is no compensation for your garden.
Oh! So pretty. :-) I love them.
DS - We're off the beaten path, but still not far enough out where you expect to see this sight in your front yard!Marie - They're so beautiful, it's hard to get mad.
We have deer but none of them have those cute Bambi-like spots. They all seem to share a taste for landscaping however, spots or not!
Aw, but it's so cute. :) Kind of like the rabbits in my backyard. :(
For a minute I thought that first picture was of a fake bambi. You know how some people have pink flamingos or gnomes in their yard. Do you? Have them?
Kim - Ha ha! No pink flamingos or gnomes here, but when I first saw Bambi, I thought my dog had gotten loose!
I think we have the same backyard! My husband gets so cross at his 'garden eaters', but I think they're rather cute...deer and bunnies alike.
Ooh...so lucky to be living in the country side. I get excited seeing birds roost on my little apartment balcony :D
If you want to keep deer away from your plants, try sprinkling cayenne pepper powder around them. It's a gardening trick my friends and I use, and it works like a charm.
