Oh, deer, what can the matter be?

Dear deer, what can the matter be?
Oh, deer, what can the matter be?
Mom promised she'd bring me
A field full of grasses here --
But all we have is this snow.

Hey, deer, what are you scratching for?
Dear deer, what are you scratching for?
It isn't a bug, and
It isn't a butterfly,
'Cause all we have is this snow.

We're on our way home from a sunny European holiday, and have realized from checking online that there is still snow, in mid-April, waiting for us at home in Alberta, Canada.
Oh dear! What CAN the matter be?

Posted in Den Haag, Netherlands,

Too bad, your homeland is filled with that nasty white stuff still!!! You'll have warmer temps soon tho.

And my "DEER"'ve chosen a terrific song to go with the photos.

It will make a change from all the colour and brightness of Europe ;-)

I wouldn't mind some snow actually. Or some ice. Cinnamon ice cream for example would be perfect. With a nice dollop of whipped cream on top. Mmmmmm

Oh, I surely don't envy your having to go home to that!!! But the deer are sooooo cute! Great shot, Kay! Hope you've had a wonderful trip!

used to sing this in Primary school.

Still a lot of snow?

Too bad your home still has snow. Spring should be up your way soon, it has arrived in south eastern Washington state.

I love your photos of the deer.

Have a safe trip Kay!

I have been sick the whole week so I didn't see that you had published something and now I catch up ! Still snow at home how horrible ! Must be hard to go back to winter, but then you can get through spring again !

OMG it looks so cold there and these photos are so good to go along with the song. I have never heard this until I clicked on the YouTube. How great is this. You did well. Have a wonderful weekend :)
