Disappearing Bluebonnets

DSC_0779

Every year my front yard usually has a nice display of our beloved state flower the Bluebonnet.  I plant seeds and also buy plants to insure a full display.  There are usually enough Bluebonnets to get a good photo of family members in front of them.  The above photo is from years past.  This year was not a good year.

As usual, I  planted as I described above only to find all the Bluebonnets eaten.  Being optimistic, I ran to the garden center and bought more to plant.  Again, all the Bluebonnets were gone along with other plants and camellias.  Early one morning I found the culprit, a buck with the biggest rack I have seen in my neighborhood.  Apparently, he spent the fall eating all my front landscape.  The deer did miss one little corner of my yard and three Bluebonnets have survived. I guess I had to take what I could get this year without the usual dazzling blue display.

    Those bluebonnets are beautiful! Hopefully, the deer will move on to someone else’s yard before they are all gone.

  3. Oh well, I think a turtle ate my tomatoes.
