Wow-ZA that was way too close! I could feel my little root shaking I was so scared!
Did you see them Seed? Did ya see them? One of them was right there on the trail right over there. Deer eat sprouts you know Seed. Old Growth had said to keep a watch out for them....... and there they be, grazing right across the trail from me! Old Growth is so wise, and says the deer must have heard Forester's footsteps coming up the trail from the river down there, 'cause all of a sudden they stopped, listened, looked, then ran and jumped away quick.
Thank goodness Forester got here. I'm so glad I still have my sprout!
