the hostas are in bud!

Evidence of a deer shortage this summer…….uneaten hostas!! We have seen only one deer and those observations are spaced by a couple of weeks each time. And it’s evident with the budding hostas for the first time in over 4-5 years. Nice to see the yard in tact, especially my lilies. But I do miss seeing the deer too. Haven’t walked through the forest in the past month, so wondering if I’d see more. I hope there is actually more than one…how lonely to be the sole deer in this patch of forest. Also evident this summer is the presence of chipmunk. Without Tigger claiming his territory they are free to run and play and multiply. Ready to begin some bike rides and survey and photograph other patches of our urban forest. : )
