A to Z 2015 Challenge N is for Nieve

Nieve = Snow... 
 
 
A close up of chicken wire protecting
iris and a tiny Oregon Vine Maple tree
from our sweet little deer...
 

 
We only got a little bit the other night...
 
 
 
Nieve can also mean "sherbet" 
I would want more than a little bit...

Deer are sweet but I know how destructive they can be when hungry.

Snow, still? May this be the last of it for you this season!

Deer are beautiufl in the meadows and woods and wild places, and so destructive in gardens.

Deer are so easy to forgive! What lovely pictures.

Nice protection. I love to watch the deer. So precious.

I love sherbet too and sorbet is good too. A lot of either.

Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs to you and tons of scritches to Miss Lucy. ♥♥♥

Great snow photos, nice of you to plant some deer salad, but they are fun to watch.

Deer would be more welcome than gators and sting rays.

Beautiful pictures, but I'm over snow for a few months. We got a lot in Upper Michigan this year.

You're still getting snow?? Condolences. Mid april should be more the stuff of blossoms and air redolent with their fragrance, don't you think?

Have fun on A-Z :)
