I can send a picture. We have violets that were so happy outside, but now they are being eaten and the color on the leaves is fading.

You can go ahead and send a picture to questions@gardeningknowhow.com.

If they look like someone has taken scissors to them and sheared them off, this is deer damage. This article will help with that:

If you are seeing holes in the leaves, this is likely slug damage. This article will help with that:
