There I was chewing on my pencil and contemplating a plan of the garden at my desk... Hello! Who's this cheeky fellow, not 15 feet from my home office window...
I hope those garden chairs will protect the soft green Aristolochia californica (Dutchman's pipevine) and the young and tender Calycanthus occidentalis (spicebush), which is growing just in front of it. Dang! I wish I had put the wire (from around a load of stones) in place of the chairs like I meant to!
Oh No! White chairs hold no terrors for this young buck! (But look at his sweet antler bumps!)
He's checking to see if Duncan is around, I think.
I think he must have heard me... for off he bounded - and in fact, he didn't seem to like the flavor of the pipevine, for I still have not gotten that wire in place, and the pipevine is filling out nicely after its early spring pruning.
