Thanks to a mild winter, tulips have come up early in Colorado! 

 I didn’t expect to see them so early, and the tulips in our front yard have already been sampled by Bambi. I’m setting up some mechanical deterrents as I don’t want to use chemical wards. Some people swear by garlic sticks, plastic forks, home made sprays, or comercial solutions, but I use fencing. It helps with lessening the impact of hail to my plants, and it’s a one and done solution. I dont have to worry about reapplication or possible adverse effects to my plants.
