Where is Elmer Fudd when We Need Him?

No photos this morning, since I'm on a mission to have a face-to-face chat with a deer.  This absolutely beautiful giant buck has been in the neighborhood for a couple of years, and has suddenly decided that "Antique Shades" pansies are his version of M & M's. 

The problem, of course, is that I've only seen him very early in the morning, standing defiantly on the far side of the lawn, looking much like a $50,000 bronze garden ornament.   He is like this mythical creature, emerging out of the mist.

I'm afraid he knows that I think he's an incredible garden accessory, and I would never dream of doing anything to harm him........I'm going to need to call on Elmer Fudd, since all I can do is smile, shake my head, and continue to put out more pansies on his buffet....


  1. be careful of a buck in mating season. They will attack.
    I have eliminated 95% of my front garden due to deer (which moved in two years ago). I went as far as buying netting. Then I said *^#* it!
    Hope the herd doesn't find you.

  2. The rabbits have found me. I've got a few plants that have been shredded in the past few days. At least I assume they are rabbits. I've never seen a deer here. There aren't enough actual woods to conceal them.

  3. Sorry to hear about the deer. We have veggie stealing squirrels.
