Why did the deer cross the road?
To get to the tasty shrubbery in my neighbor's yard, of course!:
Riddle me this: Why, when DIRECTLY ACROSS THE STREET from this property is acres and acres and acres of undeveloped, tree-, shrub-, bush- and flower-laden land, do the deer insist on coming into the neighborhood to eat the shrubs? Do they taste THAT MUCH BETTER than the stuff growing wild all over the place?
Is a mystery.
Oh, and the deer COMPLETELY BYPASSED all my plantings on her way to the neighbor's house. Heh.
