I just mentioned to someone in the comments that I rarely have trouble with deer eating things in my garden.
I spoke too soon.
All the day lilies on the side of the house have been eaten. Several of the brown-eyed susans and some of the phlox have been chomped on.
I think he is the culprit:
This is the guy I shooed away from the side garden bed the other day – where all the day lilies are.
So frustrating! And I forgot to spray any deer repellent, so that part of it is my fault. The only thing saving me from being really depressed is the fact that I’m going away for about 3 weeks, and then I’m going away in August, as well, so I won’t see the garden as much as I normally would.
Speaking of critters, these three bunnies were out and about when I first got up this morning. Chippie was also in view, sunning himself on a rock.
Lots to do before I leave and now that I’m back from NYC, I am shifting into overdrive.
The roadside lilies have begun to bloom. They’re so beautiful.
And there are lots of flashes of red in the garden now that the bee balm is in bloom.
I’m off to start in on my To Do list.
