Dear ate my buds, every one!
Well, for the 2nd year, the durn dear waited until just before my asiatics and tigers burst open, came thru and in 1 night ate about 100 flower buds. Not 1 got missed. For 10 years no problems with dear, then last year they were starving due to severe late freeze so I forgave them, but this year they have plenty of forage and came back anyhow!
My gosh, I wish they'd poison themselves!
