It's bad enough when the deers eat my hostas, but when they knock over the bit of fencing I placed over one vulnerable plant in order to gain access to its tender, delicate shoots that's just too much. One might even call it unacceptable. The worst thing about it is, they don't trouble themselves with any other plants; why bother foraging in the woods or whatever if there's a veritable buffet of delicious ornamental plants available to destroy. "Would sir care for the rhododendron this evening?" "No, I believe I'd prefer the hosta today." Bah. I bet they know hoe much it annoys me, too!
