Nice photos , Bonnie. We have all those but our deer stay in the preserve across the river and my Lucy likes to bark at them. Once in a while they venture into the yard. I’m still trying to catch the hummingbirds..talk about flitting! The fox never gets that close but I think it is keeping the squirrels and rabbits at bay, as well as the raccoons, which is great for the vegetable garden.
I have a feeling you are farther out into the country than we are. We are on the outskirts of town but the preserve is pretty much our backyard.
It’s to bad about your invasive tree because it looks really pretty.
Looking forward to more photos. Do you have a flickr site?
