I am so mad! It doesn't look like I am going to have tulips blooming for the second year in a row. Last year a hard frost got them and now something has eaten them!! I am guessing deer, because the way they are eaten all the way to the ground. Don't think a rabbit can do that on a whole row of tulips, that I have planted behind my garage. I have never had this happen before. I live in town, in a residental neighborhood. I've been living in the same house for about 24 years, and in the last 2 years have been seeing deer when we have never had them around here before. Just 2 weeks ago around 7 a.m. I looked out my front living room window and there about 6 feet away from my house was a deer looking into my backyard! The deer population has really gotten out of hand around here. Back in January I saw a coyote walking down the middle of our neighborhood street! I've only seen them out in the country. Poor animals don't know where to go anymore. Ok...for anyone that reads my blog, maybe you can tell me if this looks like deer that have eaten my tulips, and if there is anything that I can do to prevent this from happening again?
