Randomness and Marv


The deer found the unprotected tulips in the front bed...
 

The CWD (Chicken Wire Defence) down along the side of the house

They leave the daffodils alone


 The snow is starting to melt up high and the river is rising

  3. We have a few left over tulips...the squirrels demolished ours a while back...sigh...Deer are not just road hazards...sheesh:(

    Marv, For a moment I thought you had grown a skunk tail, LOL!!

  4. The spring plants that appeared next to the house are a joy, even if they crave deer and chickens. ☺
    Cats are also better, they only eat grass!

    Have a fine day!

  5. How disheartening to have the tulips devoured by deer!
    Marv's skunk reminds me of a cat toy we brought back from Las Vegas. It was a ferret attached to a ball. The ball had a battery in and it looked like the ferret was rolling it around. Flynn was scared of it so I detached the ball and he had years of fun with the ferret after. Marinating in nip probably helped too.

  6. We can't keep tulips in our yard - between the deer and the squirrels digging up the bulbs - it's hopeless! Marv, you look very serious in that photo!

    Hugs, Teddy

  7. Bummer about your tulips. We only have 1 tulip in this yard and it's very close to the entrance to the kitchen. Maybe that's why the deer leave it alone. What a great photo of you, Marv!

  8. Lynn never bothers to plant tulips. Those deer eat so much food around here and there so much out there natural it's aggravating. However they're beautiful and the next thing you know we're going to be looking at baby fawns. Hope there's no flooding when all that snow melt. And oh yes by the way this morning we have four inches of snow but it won't stay here long.

  10. Oh dear, the deer do love to eat the flowers and plants we don't want them to eat. Too bad they can't read so we could put up a sign not to eat the flowers! The river looks gorgeous right now.

  11. Man, around here the squirrels lop the tulips off, one by one. Deer too, but the squirrels are the worst. They just fell the tulip and go on to the next! They don't even eat. The squirrels also dig the daffodils up and replant them.

  12. Those deer sure enjoyed the tulips! Guess they are vegetarians. MOL!

  13. Dang it...just when you get pops of green somebuddy decides to have a snack. For years we tried to grow hostas in the ground. Rabbits and chippies ate them to the ground. For the last several years we have them in pots. So far so good.

  14. There are critters that will eat the beautiful things you plant. They have to eat too. I know they appreciate the meal.

    You are most handsome, Marv.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. Scritches all around, a smooch to Marv and a huge hug to mom. ♥

  15. It's a good thing you have the CWD in place so you can enjoy your tulips. As for snow...we have a couple inches on the ground here today!

  18. Yikes about losing the tulips to deer! The daffodils are beautiful though, and the river is too! And Marv is looking adorable today!

  19. Something chewed on a few of my bushes, Marv, but hopefully they will bounce back.
    Probably not deer, but a groundhog, or even a bunny...

  20. Deer are always a nuisance! Keep your eyes open Marv!

  21. Watch for those mean Cat Eating Deer Marv! Do you have your Deer Repellant?

  22. We have a beautiful garden on one side of the nursing home where I work. Since it's in a rural area, all the plants growing there are ones the deer don't like. But last summer, someone brought in a big hanging pot of lovely petunias. The deer sure loved devouring that! That chicken wire on the back of your flower bed is a good idea. I should do that to keep Chester from stomping on my irises there! (Oh, and maybe keeping that rotten squirrel from jumping up onto the window box bird feeder!)

  23. Nice images from the nature around you!
    But the last one is genius!
    Happy WW!

  24. That's sad about the tulips. We don't have deer anywhere nearby so we didn't realize they eat all the flowers. The only things we have are raccoons, possums & skunks. We sure hope your CWD will protect the rest of your lovely plants.

  27. The critters like spring color as much as we do, but for a different reason.

    Marv, i love that pose!

  28. I hope the water doesn't get too high. Looking good Marv!

  29. Hey Marv, we hope you having a pawsome day. We hope that was just a one time snack for the deer and the rest of your garden will be safe. Thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful rest of your day.

  31. Darn deer. It might be time to call Elmer Fudd.

  32. I do not know how our tulips survive. Deer are all over the area. ~shrugs~ Another blessing I must count, it seems. :) Blessings, my dears.
