Just as I was starting to wonder what had happened to one of my favorite hostas this guy/gal arrives.
This was apparently a very prolific year for the local deer, many fawns and an abundance of food. And I’ll admit I’ve slacked in my deer deterrent efforts lately so I’ve paid the price in hostas, lettuce and other assorted plants.
I’ll probably make an attempt to preserve my early Fall landscape over the coming week but I’m not going to go crazy – I just want to maintain the balance and not let them get too comfortable in my yard!
I think this battle in the Deer Wars is a draw.
