Re: Where is everyone? Outside?

I think you need to look around and see what else is happening in your
neighborhood.  Is this just an influx of too many new deer in the neighborhood
and some control needs to be put in place to reduce the population?  Or have
they started building too much and taken away all the natural habitat the deer
once had?  

This is so sad Auralie.  Maybe a 14ft fence surrounding your
property is in order..... gardeners have to do what ever it takes sometime.
