I will be honest, these are not my tulips. My tulips have been properly munched by either deer or raccoons . Unbelievably even the tulips on our deck next to the door have become a critter salad bar. Luckily daffodils are not as tasty and we still have those to enjoy.
These tulips are from further north on the island. Remarkably they are not fenced in and the deer do not touch them. It must be one of the benefits of a high traffic area . (Well “high traffic” in Pender terms! )
