The deer here have eaten my tulips to the point that I don't think I will get blooms on some of them. They tend to like my roses too! We spray a natural deterrent made from eggs on our hedge, that seems to help if we keep at it every few weeks. I guess we need to spray the tulips too.

Nah, a cougar wouldn't eat him, just play with him a little. Something tells me it wouldn't be very pleasant either way, though...


Good luck with the deer, Andy. Some friends of ours back in WA built raised beds for their garden to keep the smaller critters away. The deer thought they'd made a buffet for them, perfect height! I can't recall what they did to remedy that problem. I hope yours move on with the nicer weather.

That's the expectation. With all kinds of vegetation beginning to sprout, food shouldn't be a problem any longer.

Funny this is, all kinds of critters have been spotted in our neighborhood - coyote, rabbits, ducks, fox, groundhogs, but no one has seen a deer.

Has anyone seen deer tracks? I'm not sure about there, but it seems that where I grew up (Upper Peninsula of Michigan) the more timid ones preferred the very early morning to venture into yards and gardens.
Of course, iI had friends that lived out in the sticks who would find them in their back yard in broad daylight, especially if they had apple trees.

The ground is such a mess because of squirrels digging little holes all over the place looking for the nuts they buried last Fall that it's really hard to spot tracks.
