This time of year is always rough on me. I have to get up extra early to take care of the outside chores, then we rush indoors when Crematoria heats up.
My garden has been devastated by deer, rabbits, and raccoons. Every day I find more evidence of their feasting. There’s not much left to save because of the heat, but I think we’ll have to consider putting up a perimeter fence to keep out some of the wildlife.
The deer has been the boldest. I think it’s a young male. He doesn’t even have the decency to flee when he sees me anymore. If I didn’t know any better I’d swear he was sticking his tongue out at me.
