Each of our days here is enriched with the overwhelming beauty of the natural world.
Yesterday afternoon found us under the splendid sky pictured above while this morning a family of deer graced the orchard outside mom's dining room windows.

They really are lovely creatures.. so long as they aren't eating your garden patch.

susan-

Right now there's no vegetable garden for them to eat but they have stripped the bark off a few of mom's fruit trees, which have subsequently died, so I'll be ringing the rest with some hefty wire fence.

There is good fencing around several areas of the property but whether or not it will keep deer out of a garden remains to be seen. Several of the nearby places have vegetable gardens which seem to be doing fine but I've noticed many of them have barking dogs outside.

Maybe I'll have to teach Dallas some farm tricks, he's quite interested in the deer already.

I have friends who've had their gardens marauded by the cutest deer so I think that a combination of fence and barking dog might be best for discouraging them. Losing the fruit is one thing but losing the trees is sad.

I hope you both stay there a good long time.

The Bear River is a river, approximately 491 miles long, in southwestern Wyoming, southeastern Idaho, and northern Utah, in the United States. The largest tributary of the Great Salt Lake, it drains a mountainous area and farming valleys northeast of the lake and southeast of the Snake River Plain. It is also the largest river in North America that does not ultimately reach the sea.
