Charlotte loves watching the squirrels, deer and birds that visit her home daily. (Some bears, too!) The deer love eating her flowers, so she wrote a song about the disappearance of her blossoms.

Oh, Deer, the doe’s in the marigolds,
Oh, Deer, she’s munching the day lilies,
Oh, Deer, the buck nipped my roses,
He’s nibbling the snapdragons, too!
The fawns have trampled through the petunias,
Dancing and prancing all over the fuchsias,
Azaleas, hydrangeas are only bare branches,
And all the strawberries are gone.
Why don’t they like dandelions and nettles?
Why don’t they eat all the horsetails and brambles?
What can I do to protect all my flowers?
And teach all the deer to eat weeds?
