“The reindeer are eating the flowers!”
Well, my daughter’s statement is half-true. I don’t have the heart to tell her they aren’t actual reindeer, mainly because it’s so cute. But that’s really the only cute thing about this situation.
My lilies started out strong and beautiful – loaded with blooms.
I was mad at the reindeer, but at least the majority were blooming.
My anger turned to fury when our uninvited guests returned to make a meal out of the leaves, and for dessert, completely strip most of the stalks.
The only bit of good news is the flowers in the front yard have distracted the deer from the vegetables in the back.
How do I keep them out of the flowers?!?!?!? The only reindeer I want to see are fake ones, in December.
