who eats hydrangeas?

I like this photograph. It grew on me. I was disappointed at first because the subject of the picture dropped his head almost out of the frame just before I clicked it. This is taken with my cell phone zoomed in, though my subject was only 12 feet away. I’m glad he didn’t object to the photography. He’s very used to cars and crossing local roads.

Many of the empty lots are cleared and new houses are going up. I wonder if there is pressure on our in town herd and whether they have enough food. We still have Kai Tai Lagoon as a park, but there are less wild lots.

    I coastal Mass is any comparable example they will thrive on suburban landscape plantings. A whole new subset of the landscaping and greenhouse industry now thrives on deer-proof plantings.

      Nice. I have a double lot: front highest fence allowed and back shared with the deer.

      Our local deer don’t like parsley or my hot oregano and don’t like rosa rugosa that much but will eat it when they really want vitamin C.
      They don’t like poppies or the daisies. Or the invasive blackberries. I agree about the blackberries.
