This is Spike. He's been in our yard for two years now and knows exactly where we leave food for him. I can actually go out and have a conversation with him and he doesn't leave. I'm hoping he'll take an apple from my hand in the fall. He's very much at home sitting in the yard!

The only animal that visits my garden is the cat from across the road, and that is so he can pee up my car :) You are so lucky having Spike, do you want to swap :)

No thanks Julie, although Spike did think the azaleas were horsdeouvres!

What are you feeding them Linny? I have a doe that comes up to the corner of the house and eats the wheat and corn that I put out for my ducks, but it snorts and runs as soon as I go out the door. Hard for me to imagine that you have tamed this one....he certainly doesn't look threatened by you.

We feed them corn. This little guy has been with us for two years. I just go out when I see him and say "Hey Spike!". He runs if I move too quickly, but he knows I have corn and lay it on the ground for him. He is so sweet. I have put out pieces of apple too. They have a sweet tooth!
