Fore Bitten Blooms

The deer came during the night and nibbled the buds off before some daylilies bloomed.

I can tell which types are the tastiest because the entire plant is mostly decapitated stalks.

They do not just eat buds, whole arrays of open flowers are devoured.

At least I still have daylily photos to enjoy!

I took down my hanging fence rings for a photo shoot and failed to replace them. I also needed to purchase more green poles. No need now. I have plenty. Hi Ho

I do not mind sharing, but sometimes my wild friends are a bit greedy.

I guess this colorful smorgasbord is irresistible.

  1. It’s painful when they eat buds. Not quite as bad when the flowers have opened and been around a few days. I’ve had fairly good luck with deer repellant, now that I know what they like. The trick is to apply it in time.
