All of the flowers that have bloomed have disappeared. The buds that are unopened are still healthy. Upon close inspection, it was apparent that something was eating all of my flowers! Deer regularly cross my yard fairly close to the location of this flower bed, so the logical conclusion was that the deer were responsible even though I was a little confused when my brand new “deer resistant” purple coneflower disappeared overnight.
However, when I was taking this photo, the real culprit revealed himself. Or herself.
Now what do I do?
