The War is On.

We've been incredibly lucky as far as NOT getting any deer damage to our plants.  Until I saw this yesterday.  Bastards.  That WAS going to be a lily.

The Arsenal:  One bar of Irish Spring, grated.  Lots of little jars.  Water.  Mix 'em up then set the little jars near the plants most likely to be victimized.  The mister would like to pop her in the ass with a bb gun but since she's got that fawn I vetoed the idea.  For a second.  Then I said, "If you catch her in the act, shoot her right in the baby!"  

PS:  That fluff ball in the middle of the plant is Monster fur.  That's supposed to deter them as well.  Ditto bloodmeal.  If none of these things work, we move on to human urine

PSS:  I put this plan into effect yesterday afternoon.  Early this morning as I sat here typing, I heard a chuffing.  Uh huh.  There she was, eyeballing my garden from the neighbor's driveway.  I scared her off.  Good thing for her the mister wasn't awake yet.

I feel your pain. At least your deer got a little nourishment there. When the roofer stepped on my lilies, I wanted to slap him silly!

Ooooh, I fear clumsy contractors! Also, this year a drunk neighbor managed to let her leashed dog crush our poppies- grrr! They still bloomed but not very well.

haha - you have a drunk neighbor too?
one time ours helped me in with the groceries, then asked to use the bathroom.
I obliged and then she went....but left the door open. ??

Lol well at least it was a female neighbor. Wait... was your mister home too?

Dear Angry Gardener,
Is it true that Irish Spring Soap attracts Leprechauns?
