Oh Deer!!

This has been just a beautiful summer!  Yes, it's hot, but I'm loving it.  It feels so good to wake up at 6:00 in the morning, walk three miles from 7 to 8 with a tank top and shorts on, then sit on the back deck at 8:15 with my cup of coffee!  It was 72 degrees at 7:00 this morning!  I love it!
I worked in my garden until a little after noon and then it was just too hot to be working out there any longer.  I think it got up to 96 degrees, but it is so pretty out!  Now it's 6:30 pm and it is still 90 degrees.  WOW!!

OK, now that you have a full weather report,  here is what I saw the other morning at 5:30 when I got up to get ready for my morning walk.  I've lived on the lake for 7 years now and this is the first time I ever saw the deer swimming in the lake.  I guess they're hot, too!










They were a family, with the mom and dad washing the two babies!  I took the pictures from the window because I was afraid if I opened the door to step out onto the deck I would scare them away!  It was the most amazing site.  I get so mad at them when they eat my flowers in the middle of the night, but you can't get mad at them after seeing this!

I would be in there cooling off, too! Great pictures, Nina, and you're right: who can be mad at them when they are playing like this??

Oh Nina, what sweet pictures! I know they can be a nuisance but I agree, can't get mad at them here looking so cute!

Have a blessed day my friend, HUGS!

What incredible pictures - I've never seen them bathing though we've had them in our back yard many times. blessings, marlene

Such great pictures.

We frequently get deer that come into our yard in the winter, looking for food. But I've never seen deer swim before. I didn't even know they could swim. Thanks for the lesson.
