Following the Blizzard of 2010, many tree limbs around our house have broken off because of the weight of the snow. This is just one of many trees in our backyard.
Spring cleanup time will soon be here. Meanwhile, the deer have enjoyed the cedar branches on the ground.
Speaking of deer, I noticed today the deer herd that has been wintering in our backyard has left, at least for the day, but Little Deer stayed behind. He stayed by our barn and in our backyard by himself. He even came right up to the house to check the bird feeder area. It's funny how he seems to always stay in our yard, even when the others leave. There are other fawns in the herd who aren't much bigger than him, but Little Deer is not afraid to stay alone. He's my Little Deer.
