Morning Wildlife

I think I enjoy wildlife encounters as much as, if not more, than gardening. While working outside you never know what you are going to see; birds, butterflies, bees, frogs…our world is such a beautiful and amazing place and gardening puts you right in the thick of it all.

This morning I raised the blinds on the kitchen window and found this pair enjoying an early morning munch in my garden.

The apple tree was a hit, but no plant was left unlicked as they carefully worked their way around the garden.

I wish I had captured the cabbage tasting. One of the young bucks bit off a sizeable chunk of cabbage leaf, only to rapidly spit it back out. I didn’t know it was possible for a deer to look so disgusted!

All the more for me.
