A few evenings ago I turned the lights on in the small area of garden behind my house and this was the sight that met my eyes.
We’d had showers over the previous couple of days that had made the weeds shoot up again even though the grass is still burnt after the summer. Three small deer, called ‘chevreuil’ here, were eagerly eating them, which they can come back and do any time as far as I’m concerned, just so long as they leave the plants in the front of the house alone. It was about this time last year when I looked out in the morning only to find that the tops of half of them had been eaten during the night. Maybe this three had returned to the scene of the crime looking for easy pickings.
Sorry about the quality – I had to grab the video very quickly using my phone camera in poor light.
