My Daily Visitors

These beautiful young deer have become daily visitors to my backyard. These photographs were taken from the doorway of my studio. 

It is always such a thrill to see the deer in our garden, especially as we live in an area that would be considered city rather than country.  Until recently we had a large open piece of land behind our property where the deer appeared to live.  However, in the last year it has been developed and the deer have had to find new places to hang out.  We have a small forested area at the back of our yard and I suspect they spend some time there. 

According to Steven Farmer's "Animal Spirit Guides" one of the meanings of Deer showing up is that: "You're poised for an enticing adventure, one that will take you down many different paths and lead to many important insights".  He also recommends calling on Deer when "you need help finding inspiration and resources for any creative projects you're working on".

So thank you Deer for appearing to me today.  I will be calling on you for inspiration this week as I finish off the creative projects for my book.
