'Deer Neighbors'

We refer to them jokingly as our 'dear deer neighbors', but they are such a pain in the rear. I spent hours this year researching what plants deer don't like to eat, and planted my entire garden (except for the pumpkin patch) in containers - rather than my actual backyard garden - as part of my attempt to stop them from eating everything I plant.

So WHAT demented part of my brain is it that tells me all these itty bitty fawns that now roaming the neighborhood...smaller than half the dogs that walk with their people every day...fawns that I will be muttering about incessantly in a few short months, after they have grown to terrorize my flora...are actually...adorable?  Sigh!
