summer means road trips, so i’ve been visiting the vineyard on the central coast. one evening as i passed our neighbor’s field, i noticed some deer. after stopping i realized it was full of deer – there were at least a dozen of the very large fully grown animals, including a few large stags!
every year the man who owns that land tills the field, and then lets the wild grasses and flowers grow. he never plants anything, he just allows it to thrive as it will. and every year by July the grasses are golden yellow, the flowers dried out and preserved in full bloom. apparently the deer love it.
