But no matter what I do, the deer are always one step ahead of me! The snow is barely off the ground and the deer have eaten my daylilies down to the dirt, stomped my plant tags, and left big holes in the ground where they have walked through my flower beds. Aarrrgh! And so starts my yearly ritual of getting everything put back together, but most importantly, spraying my flowers with Liquid Fence to train the deer to stay out of my flower beds. I need stock in that company!
