Right, it wouldn't be so bad if they at least shaped them nicely!

Last year must have been slim pickings out in nature because they not only scarfed everything in that bed, but they also ate all of Mr B's roses in the bed below. (They're little-bitty in this pic because they were just coming back after the winter -- they're already more than doubled in size.) We went to the store and got some "deer repellant spray" -- dear god, that stuff is so foul and stinky, we couldn't stand to be anywhere outside for days on end til it rained and wore off some!

So, yeah, deer buffet it is.
