friendly wildlife

How would you like to look out your window each morning and be greeted by these beautiful animals.....?
My wonderful old friend Lois Land and her dear husband of 38 years, do exactly that.....!
They live in Northern California---inland, in the Bear Valley foothills of what is known as The Gold Country.
They are about two hours Southeast of Sacramento.....So, they are really out in the country and have lots of four footed visitors.
But it is the Deer that come in droves......
Lois says that sometimes there are twenty-five Deer, all at the same time----well, it certainly looks like almost 25 Deer in the picture above......
Why are they there?
What is it that brings them to Lois and John's house?
a Plum tree.
Yes.
A Plum Tree!
These Deer absolutely adore the plums from their tree......
Well......I guess so!!!!
Here below, some more pictures of these truly beautiful Animals......even the little ones are longing for those delicious plums......
And none of them seem to be afraid, of humans.....They just look over at Lois......almost like they are about to say, 
'Hey, come on and join us!'
'Come On!  
We won't hurt you!
We Love You!!!
And
We
Love
Your
Plums!'
'Okay!
We'll be back tomorrow and 
maybe you will join us for some
Watermelon!'


More To Come.......

I hope, dear girl, that you are calm now. I think maybe the photos of the deer might have helped. If I could have them in my yard, I would plant an orchard of plums, just for them. xo

Beautiful photos. Deer in my area don't run in herds but the elk do. Once in awhile we get a chance to see a big herd of them. It's always a treat. I love the times I see the deer also except when one gets hit on the highway. It seems to take a lot of our young ones before they can figure it out.

What wonderful photos!! We never had that many, but I used to see 3-4 everyday and sometimes 9-12. Your friends are lucky to see that many. I would go there for the plums too!!

Such lovely photos! I love the young ones, they really are cute. The plums look good. A friend at work used to give me the plums from her tree, she said they were too tart to eat. I used to make jam with them and they were so good with turkey as the jam was not very sweet. But she retired and moved away, so no more plums, just my figs. And this afternoon I created a fresh fig cake – I’ll use the recipe in a post in the future. It was good and also not too sweet.

So we are all lured by treats in the end! Hope you are doing better.

Mr. RK used to live in a house with a plum tree in the backyard, and he soon found out that raccoons love plums, too. Who knew?

Wow, such a sight would make my day. I know how the deer love plums. I didn't get one plum or peach this year, just a pile of deer poop. I'd have given anything to have seen the marauder. They are so beautiful.

So sweet, and so nice your friends don't chase them away. Adorable. Oh my, I ear watermelon every day--EVERY DAY! Can't wait for tomorrow.

What a wonderful photos, Naomi!
Your friend Lois Land and her husband live in a gorgous place.
Sounds amazing to see each morning from their windows these beautiful animals. Looks like a paradise, a dream-like!

Dear Naomi, I hope you have a pleasant week.
Many hugs.

What a beautiful sight, the deer AND the plum tree. Lucky friends and those pictures are amazing!

PS - I will check my e-mail soon and thank you for asking me to do your portrait. I will work on it soon, m'dear. :)

Glad your spirits are up! This brought a big smile to my face!

I wonder where the term plum crazy came from.

Glad to see you posting again! We have a few deer in our garden but nothing like this, or so many. And they aren't very tame.

Do they mind having all their plums eaten?? What great close up shots too. They really are beautiful animals.

Adorable! There were a lot of deer hanging out in my sister's neighborhood in Virginia, too. They gave us that same look when we drove my (very slowly.)

The deer on Exmoor are extremely shy and reclusive but the people whose gardens back onto the moor have high fences to protect their gardens.
Usually the shy, reclusive deer find a way to leap over the fence to eat the plants.

These deer seem un-phased by people around. We have a few in a woodland near to us, but they always hide in the depths.

How beautiful! I hope Lois can get a few plums higher up from the tree! Those fawns are just enchanting. Thanks so much for sharing these!
