Today (05-June-2017) — New Jersey

Wildflowers (daisies and poppies) and deer in my backyard. So far the deer have been good and not gone into my wildflower meadow. Will all of the rain we have been having here is enough greens for the deer to nibble on. It does look like the deer are attracting ticks.
