One night, my husband came home and saw some of the pickets knocked down in the bordering neighbors yard. He went over and took a look and saw two deer in their yard. In the morning, he nailed the pickets back up and didn’t think anything of it.
A few days later, he came home around the same time as before, but now saw the two deer eating the hosta plants in MY front garden. They left as soon as he pulled into the driveway.
In the morning, we took a look and saw that they had been munching on a few of them, but it wasn’t any big deal. Again, the pickets were down, and we nailed them back in place.
A few days passed and I went out to get the mail. And this is what I saw
What a shock!!! They didn’t leave even one leaf. Not one!!! This garden is at the edge of my driveway so everyone sees it and walks past it as you approach my house.
At first I was contemplating what to replace the hosta with, but then I just decided to embrace it. So what, the deer enjoyed my hosta. I still have lots of beautiful plants and flowers all around my front and back yard.
So in this case Hosta vs Deer, the Deer was the undeniable winner.
