Stepping onto our front porch the other day, we spotted a shy visitor who wasn’t quite prepared to come all the way to the front door, although she was close. A doe was nosing around in the sedge lawnette, seemingly noshing on the cut “hay” from its recent trim-by-weed-whacker (the electric mower is on the fritz).
I was indignant at first — how dare the deer start eating my sedge at THIS point — but perhaps it was just the cut pieces. So I tell myself. At any rate, she moved off at a stately, I’m-not-afraid-of-you pace after posing for a few pictures taken by my daughter. So long, deer. I’m sure we’ll see you again soon.
