Tossed Aside

They leave the clover alone, standing upright and blossoming along the berm,
 and instead choose to eat the delicate light lavender blossoms from atop their stems on our hostas.
 They must be sweeter than the clover for the deer to come so close to the house and risk being chased by our pups.
 We see this every June as the doe bring their fawn out of the woods and into the summer light.
 Perhaps these lovely bud tops are Nature's way of sweetening mama doe's milk.
She left this bud behind her as I opened the door and the pups entered the yard scaring her away.
Next time take it with you, Doe.
To simply nibble off my buds and then toss them aside?


  1. I like the white Hosta flowers more than the lavender. They are indeed very sweet in their fragrance.

  2. lovely pics, but a bit of a shame. I agree :)
