BAMBI!!!

Carmi's Thematic Photographic 360 is Signage. I've often wondered how this Exxon stays in business. Their gasoline prices are usually at least 40 cents higher than even the other Exxons not that far away.

I'm also contributing to TexWiscGirl's Good Fences #92. In spite of the fact that it's been warm around here and there's a big mowed field full of grass just down the mountain a bit, BAMBI!!! decided to push the fence protecting the mountain laurels down and munch away.



And here's a rose for Michelle's Nature Notes (#343):

UPDATE: Here's what they looked like in November:

Happy Holidaze, & best for the New Yr. in your new home!

There's an intersection here w/ TWO Chevron stations, kitty-corner, as they say. One of these days I'll get some shots & compare prices.

Hello, the bambi's here seem to leave the mountain laurel alone. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

I had heard they don't like mountain laurel.

Even plant experts have a hard time predicting a deer's appetite for different species: some declare mountain laurel (Kalmia latifolia) poisonous to deer, others label it deer resistant, while still others put it among deer favorites.

I'm no expert at plants, but they sure go after these. Pretty annoying, since they grow so slowly. And these two that got munched were doing the best they ever have.

Oh no.... They have eaten things here they aren't supposed to like. I have two hydrangeas that I have tried to protect, but they are going to be replaced next season.... A very Merry Batmass to you too... Oh nuts, I think I forgot to grab your photo for the collage and I did the post already as my family is coming... I will fix it if I can..... I know why, I missed the post, but I don't know why I did.... Anyway... Merry Christmas!... Michelle

An interesting series. We too have an occasional gas station that continues to have extra high prices. I wonder how they manage to stay in business. Have a great day.
