    Lovely photos! And I see I’m not the only one with snow in my yard on April 1st.

    Oh! Oh! Oh! You’re so lucky, Kathy!!! Tim says put out a carrot or two for her! (We learned that they love carrots in “The Gift of the Deer.”

    • Kathy says:

      They do LOVE carrots, Barbara. Let me see if I can find a blog I wrote about that…one moment please. Gosh, I can’t find it. The lead photo to my blog was a carrot in my hand, trying to lure in one of the deer. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to feed a deer in your hand? (By the way, we put out veggie scraps for the deer most every day. They love them!)

      • Barbara Rodgers says:

        How disappointing you couldn’t find the picture, Kathy! It would be the thrill of a lifetime to feed a wild deer by hand – I did it in a zoo once, but that doesn’t really count. I bet the deer love you, too, for your veggie scrap gifts!

  4. That’s when you KNOW spring is here 🙂

  5. Carol says:

    Surely she brought spring with her, yes?

  6. Sybil says:

    Oh how wonderful. I’d never want to sit down in the bathroom for fear I’d miss something outside the window 😉

    Kathy – Is there any creature more beautiful? Today I look out my window and see destruction from the tornadoes that went through yesterday. This peaceful picture is a welcome sight! Love your pretty girl!

    • Kathy says:

      She is so beautiful. It makes us want to reach out and stroke her fur, doesn’t it? You had tornadoes go through yesterday? Destruction? How sad…glad to provide a peaceful scene from the north.

  8. Robin says:

    She’s beautiful.

    Deer remind me so much of my mother. A few months before her death, and then for a while after, deer would show up at odd times (“odd” being times we normally wouldn’t see them, such as the middle of the day visit they made when Mom was visiting us). Deer medicine can be very comforting and healing.

    • Kathy says:

      Deer medicine is special, indeed. It is interesting that your mother chose to show herself through the deer. Their peacefulness can be so special.

  9. Dawn says:

    She sure is pretty. I like them as long as they stay out of my gardens. Which of course they never do. Silly deer! 🙂

    • Kathy says:

      Oh yes–oh yes–we know that deer story, too, Dawn. We have an electric fence around our garden because this sweet doe (and her dozens of friends) would eat EVERY single thing in our garden if they were given the opportunity.

      Barry always calls the deer “doe heads”. He’s always walking out to the garage carrying on a conversation with the “doe heads”. They always cock their heads and listen to him.

  11. She is so soft and velvety. As for snow, I am about to go snowshoeing in the yummy wet 12 inches mama dropped on us yesterday in Coastal Maine.

    • Kathy says:

      We would like some moisture for the soil right now, Carla. I don’t know about 12 inches of wet snow, but–OK–if it melts quickly. Enjoy your snowshoe! Sounds fun.

    It is so much fun when nature comes to visit. My most recent and rare visitor came last week (see my recent post) … his fur looked so fluffy and soft,. His cautious curiosity and those dark eyes made me forgive him ahead of time for any mischief he might cause in the near future.

    • Kathy says:

      OK, I will have to go visitin’ and see who’s been visitin’ you, bearyweather. Intriguing! (I suspect skunk or raccoon or porcupine?)

  14. Karma says:

    What Elisa said! (that was going to be my comment!)

  15. Marianne says:

    Awwww! It’s so cute. And imagine…right outside the window….nice!

    • Kathy says:

      I thought she looked cute, too. Look at that expression as she stares at the bathroom window. Priceless! (This is what happens when you don’t have kids at home anymore. The deer and the birds entertain you.)

Thank you for reading. May you be blessed in your life...may you find joy in the simple things...
