I’m not a gardener, so I don’t get too worked up when I see them. After all, the deer are not invading our land: We have invaded theirs.

However, I do understand why people who are serious gardeners get so worked up over the deer. This bush, right across the street from where the deer were grazing on my lawn, shows why: The bush should be covered with white flowers all over, but the deer have eaten all around the bush, leaving flowers only in the middle, where they can’t reach:

Dungeness crab season has arrived at a local fish market:

I love life in the Pacific Northwest!

Happy week to all.

One thought on “Three Things Thursday”

  1. I love the deer! And I’m like you…I don’t get bent out of shape about them (or the goats or cows or pigs or the gazillion other critters that wander through our yard) eating our plants. 🙂
