Oh Deer!!

I was so excited to come home from our long weekend and find my sunflowers that my daughter and I had planted had grown about six inches taller than when I left and the leaves were huge and I just knew they would be beautiful when they bloomed.  Well....I woke up and looked out the window the next morning and all the leaves were gone.  Hum....what happened!!  I was so upset!  Upon further investigation, I went out and almost all the leaves were chewed off my sunflowers!  Drat!

In the mulch, I found these.  Did not look like doggie prints to me.  I believe those are hoofs!!  And, I don't believe it is time for Santa's sleigh.

Humph!  I guess I planted something that the deer thought looked like a salad bar and they helped themselves.  Lovely.

What's a girl to do when her backyard looks like this.  I would like to live here too if I were a deer I suppose.  Sigh.....
