Deer Family In Terri’s Backyard

My friend Terri lives in her home in Tennessee and often shares her photos of flowers and backyard visitors. Back in the spring, I shared Terri’s Spring Flowers. In May she shared her summer garden. Today she is sharing her deer family that occasionally comes to visit. She said she hadn’t seen them in a while and was so happy all three came. Terri puts out feed for birds, squirrels, and deer. Her home backs up to woods. Right now Terri is worrying about the deer as hunting season is starting soon. She’d love to hide the deer.

I was raised in Tennessee but have lived in Florida for many years. Love my small home in the Tampa Bay area and its developing garden. My decorating style is eclectic - some vintage, some cottage, all with a modern flair. Pursuing a healthier lifestyle. Spent many years in social services but am happily retired.

    1. I feel the same way about migrating geese – I’ve heard folks up in Michigan say they hate the geese because of the poop. We all poop and we can’t expect birds to use an outhouse!

  1. Carol – lovely to see a family together. In Montana at this time of year, bucks have their mind on only one thing, and the most you can expect is to see this year’s fawns still lingering with the does. Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!

  2. I would have, truthfully, mixed feelings if I saw deer in my yard (apart from the garden plants they will eat). They are beautiful creatures, but the ticks they carry where I live can carry Lyme Disease, and I know someone whose 19 year old daughter died from Lyme. My husband and I also have relatives who got Lyme and it’s a big concern in our area.. Still, it is a thrill to see nature in your back yard, isn’t it? Alana ramblinwitham

    1. I’m so sorry to hear about the problem of Lyme disease. I don’t really hear about it here in Florida. I’ll have to ask Terri about ticks in her area. You brought up a good point. I don’t think feeding them in your yard would be good.

  3. Two bucks and a fawn. That’s different. In Vermont, it is illegal to feed the deer. It’s called baiting them here. Different states, different rules, right? Beautiful photos.

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
