We gardeners spend a good bit of time worrying about how to keep wildlife from gobbling our gardens. But then a day like this comes along... when you peer over the top deck and meet the sweetest of all visitors.
It certainly inspires me to calm down a bit when I see that another young aspen tree has become the evening meal.
It's rare for a moose to have twins and I imagine that poses a difficult set of challenges. Perhaps that's why Mom let them sleep in a yard where she knows she's welcome and no harm will come to her kids.
Did you know...? A mother moose needs about 50 pounds of food a day. So, she's not trying to be destructive. She's just hungry and thinks all greenery is fair game. Scatter some apples or plant a willow tree in a spot where it's okay if it gets shredded. That might convince Mrs. Moose to leave your aspen seedlings alone.
Oh how sweet, what a treat to see this up close and personal. Twins, to cool.
And you are going to be very careful and not let yourself or GoodDog get close enough to Mama Moose to get stomped. Right?
wow wow-nothing like that here to be sure!
