Putrescent Egg Solids

Just before we left for San Diego, the lilies I planted in front of the fence started to bloom:

When we got back, I discovered that deer like lilies:

The ones between our parked car and the fence were not touched, but all the others not protected by the car were lopped off.

Yesterday, I finally made it to the nursery, where I picked up some deer spray. First active ingredient is "Putrescent Egg Solids." I'll let you imagine what that stuff smells like! After I sprayed it on the plants, Poppy couldn't stop sniffing and licking my garden gloves, so now I'm wondering if every dog in the neighborhood is suddenly going to take an interest in my flowers.

I'll let you know later this summer if the deer spray works.
