Oh deer

I knew our new landscaping looked nice. But, I guess it was a little too attractive for the neighborhood deer.

We woke up this morning and noticed that ALL of the leaves were missing on our plants. Apparently, the deer think that our landscaping is an all-you-can-eat buffet. And, though usually I’m flattered if anyone finds something I serve tasty enough to eat, that doesn’t apply to the offerings on the front lawn.

I think I’ve found a solution, though. We’ll be adding moth balls to the landscaping menu. Hopefully that will make the deer move on to find a better-smelling buffet.

Oh no! After all your hard work. Let us know how things go after the moth balls!

I love deer! I miss living in the middle of nowhere and seeing them all the time.

I just wanted to stop by and say thank you for checking out my blog and the comment. :)

Oh....and I know how bad those deer can be. They used to love getting in my mom's garden and eating anything in sight!

I hope the moth balls work! We have deer but they stay on the other side of the small lake behind our house. I do have an armadillo though, and its decided to live under the air conditioner slab...moth balls were suggested to make him uncomfortable too.
