Sure do wish that deer would eat Chasmanthe.
Both of my mowers are out of commission at the moment or I'd be out there whacking the stuff down. Problem is, I never know what might be hiding in it...which is precisely why mower #2 is out of commission. It tried to eat a pile of hidden rocks.
This young buck is not Buckly, the 4-point buck who laid around here for a week this fall, but is a forked horn. The horns are hard to see..try clicking on the photo to make 'em bigger. We saw at least 20 of his relatives at Ancil Hoffman Park this weekend. there are probably another 60 that we didn't see.
