We usually don’t have much trouble with deer, although there are plenty of them around the Glade. We often see them on the golf course behind our house or in the vacant lot below our house. But they usually stay away from our house because we use Liquid Fence to discourage them from lunching on our flowers.
Usually, but not always. We’ve had a very hot and dry May, and for some reason the deer appear to be more active because of the unusual weather. We have seen them about in the middle of the afternoon, while we normally see them in the early evening.
The picture above shows our Lollypop lilies (and a Veteran’s Honor rose) in the flower bed nearest the road. The picture was taken last Sunday — the deer came to lunch on Tuesday while we were running errands. I didn’t have the heart to take an ‘after’ picture.
Here’s another view of the buffet the deer enjoyed. They left the purple iris you see on the left, but munched on the roses, lilies and day lilies. The roses will come back, and the day lilies should bloom in the fall (if we can keep the deer away). We’ll just have to wait until next year to enjoy the lilies.
I never thought Bambi would do such a thing!
