DEER IN THE WOOLDLAND GARDEN. I have had this family of deer returning to my garden for two months. I have taken photos of them drinking out of the bird baths and eating from the bird feeder. It is sad when you have a hot and dry summer for all of nature's food dries up. I remember one summer there wasn't food for the squirrels, so they were swimming the lake to cross over in search of food. People who love animals were out in their boats saving as many as they could. Thank God for our six -inches of rain yesterday.

The rain was wonderful, wasn't it? I blog about it today too, Mary. How horrible for the squirrels that year. I'm glad wildlife find respite in your woodland garden.

Hi Kerri, the rain was more than wonderful. The leaves that are still on the trees are smiling and their rooted toes are wiggling. Yes, from day one my garden was planned around me and the wildlife.

Your woodland garden is such a peaceful place to escape life's stresses. Glad the wildlife are enjoying it too.

Yes Missy, that is mine and the wild creatures oasis. I pray, I can restore it this Fall after a couple of bad weather years.
