Who's Been Eating My Roses?

The friendly neighborhood deer, that's who.
I caught four of them in a yard across the alley one day, happily
munching on the bushes and grass.
While this isn't the first time, all of my previous sightings
were at night.
The does and fawns are approachable but the bucks will run at the
first sound you make.
Sometimes we see a dozen at a time, as they come up the street
from their home near the drainage ditch.
Other common visitors to our yards include possums, raccoons and
skunks as well as Texas Rat Snakes, Texas Spiny Lizards,
Green Anoles, and Mediterranean Geckos.
