My trail camera captured this image a few nights ago.
That a pretty big deer there in the Rose Field. I see evidence of light deer damage on my roses from time to time, but it is rarely anything really terrible. To be safe, though, I plan to protect my newly planted baby roses with little wire cages till spring.
"Hart" is an old English word for deer. It's no surprise, therefore, to see deer in a place named Hartwood ... though I see WAY more deer in neighboring subdivisions than I do here in our country setting.
