My deerest

Thursday, February 18, 2021


I know you're thinking how cute this little deer is but let me tell you this, who we have here is the perpetrator of crimes! This wretched muntjac has eaten all my lovely flowers over the years. It brazenly waltzes through our front garden and treats it as an all-you-can-eat buffet. My doorstep pots have been ruined (again) this time in around a week of having been planted up with violas to flower through the winter. None of the plants has pulled round so my pots look horrible with straggly remnants and have done for months. The deer eats my spring bulbs and last year ate a pot of tulips just as they came into flower. No shoots are safe and there's no way I can protect anything from the jaws of this beast. It knows I don't like it. If looks could kill I'd be having roast venison on Sunday. 

Photographically speaking, I shot it through the window several times since the snow arrived. Preceded by exclaiming "the bloody deer is out the front AGAIN!!! Where's my camera".

Any ideas how to deter a deer from eating all my nice garden flowers? I'm so angry it just spoils all the lovely things I look forward to seeing. 

Take care,
