Deer munching deer resistant plants

We've always had periodic deer visits, they always munched the firespike, but we are under attack this year. A new elementary school is going in a few blocks away and they've cleared a large wooded area. This fall, we've seen daylilies, rainlilies, hardy amaryllis and even mondo grass grazed to nubs. They took all of the foliage from my rose bush even. The only safe plants have been salvia, gingers, and cactus.

My neighbors may hate me, but we got a big bag of deer corn to feed them in hopes that they'll leave the plants alone. The poor things must be starving!
