Look closely, in the middle. It's taunting me! And, to make matters worse, it has THREE babies!!!!
TRIPLETS!!!!! They're cute, but they grow up to be 400lb eating machines.
There's nothing worse than planting a nice plant that's supposed to be "deer resistant" only to find out that no one told the deer that! Some of the things that have surprised me......passion vine (chowed), banana plants, (how do they know to eat those?), geum, all sorts of flowers including daylilies, and most confounding, potato plants, (the leaves are poison - sorry, but too bad it didn't at lease give them a bellyache)
I'll be on amazon today ordering myself a deer scare sprinkler. We've had one before, and it actually works pretty well. In 2 weeks, over the 4th of july, we're putting up our fence in the back, so that MIGHT slow them down a bit. ARGH!!!
On a happy note, today is labyrinth day. In a couple of hours, we'll be outside, in the rain (of course) building our long-awaited labyrinth.
Won't the neighbors be curious?
Oh, and by the way, these guys are NO help with the deer......those dang deer just look at them as if to say "what's your loud, barky problem?"
