Signs of Spring

I was making dinner this weekend and saw movement in the backyard. When I looked out the window I didn't see kids running around. I saw this. A mama deer enjoying the onion grass in our backyard. I have wondered how the deer survive the rough winters in our back woods. But they must have found a way because now they are in my backyard, looking for some extra nourishment.

This is why I can't plant a garden. I know it would just be a revolving salad bar for this deer and her family. But that's okay by me. I like seeing this scene as I make dinner. Plus gardens are a whole lotta work when I have a fabulous farmers market just up the road, spilling over with all the fresh veggies I could ever want.
