We love to set outside in the summer, but this year's extreme heat has kept us indoors a big part of the time. There's just few things more pleasant than setting outside under a tree with a big glass of iced tea.
The only time now that we can enjoy the patios is late in the day, just as the sun is going down. I usually water the few flowerbeds that have survived the deer and the heat. I don't know which one has taken the biggest toll this year!
I know, that sounds silly. We've lived out here on Granny Mountain 7 years now and there's nothing to be afraid of. Lots of times I even go up to the mailbox after dark.
When the moon is out, you can see the deer standing right at the edge of the yard. They watch us closely... "Deer Buffet" starts when the living room lights go off!
I wonder who tells them that the coast is clear?
