Hope this works, imagine having to tell her that her little guy was eaten by a deer It’s amazing to live in a place where there’s so much wildlife but I can imagine it’s a challenge when it comes to gardening!
We live in such an urban area that I’ve never even seen a hedgehog or a rabbit in this yard. I grew up on the edge of town and we’d see hedgehogs, foxes, rabbits and the like all the time (no deers here though ). I barely see anything other than snails and slugs and the neighbourhood cats here, unfortunately. We had to take down a large, dead (dangerous) tree a few years ago and now the constant birdsong is also gone. I am consciously trying to attract birds and insects through what I’m planting but some years that works better than others.
