Wishful thinking?

The deer already ate my crocuses, and they were sooooo beautiful, for a day.

And the tulips are coming up now.

So to prevent my future tears when the damn deer (and no you can’t shoot her Jeff) (yet) eat my tulips, I went on the offensive today.

But there was just no Deer Off in the stores.

Think I’m joking? It’s really a product! It is made with stinky eggs, garlic, and pepper and keeps bunnies and squirrels away too.

I thought about fencing the entire garden, but that didn’t seem logical.

So I surrounded the tulips with tomato cages.

Still doubtful this will work at all, I tied long strings of orange flagging tape to all the cages.

I’m still not convinced this is going to stop our mischievous deer.
