I'm a slow learner...

At our last house, we had a wooded area behind our yard.
 The deer from the nearby county park would use it as a cut through and munch on my flower beds. We had birds galore there ...
and plenty of squirrels to keep us amused

Even an occasional groundhog would chomp on fallen apples.
And I always said that if we moved I would not live near the woods. Well....last spring we did move and what does the view look like out of my dining room windows??
A paradise for squirrels, birds and yes, deer.
I do enjoy watching the woodpecker and her babies and I'll just hope the deer stay out of the flower beds!! Keeping my fingers crossed.
