Oh Deer!

One of the first signs of fall at our house is an increased amount of deer droppings in our yard. They get very hungry this time of year and although everything we planted was "deer resistant," they manage to choke down many of my plants. Like this Virginia creeper. Notice how lush and beautiful it is growing at the bottom of the tree and also out of deer's reach but they ate the middle completely.

Apparently the deer aren't my only problem. The other morning, I looked out my window, and what did I see? A big moose eating my neighbor's tree. (Yes that can be sung to the tune of "Popcorn Popping")

You crack me up! It is so annoying to have critters eating up your plants, even if they are magnificent moose or cute (what!?) deer. We have the same problem here and I hope you can make it through the season without too much landscape damage!
