Disappearing BluebonnetsPosted: April 28, 2016
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.
