Hi there.....

So kind of you to stop by....I do enjoy the company.

Yesterday was a better day. I actually managed to get some herbs planted in the garden as well as some petunias in an old wheelbarrow. My bill at Lowe's is increasing this month! Had to buy bird food as well. When I planted the herbs I noticed that the deer had been nipping off the heads of the sunflower plants so.....coyote urine sprinkled about the area should keep them away....I hope. Have to buy more. 'Course there's also Deer Away too. I'll try that next if the coyote stuff fails. What with the bountiful supply of hickory nuts and acorns you'd think they'd leave things alone, but nooooooo. One of my Nandinas is chewed almost to the roots! Guess they're wanting greens. Heh, one of the reasons I don't plant daylillies. They lovvvve the blossoms. Wonder if there's something about fiddleheads (baby ferns) they don't like 'cause there's plenty of those in the woods. Someday.....someday, I'll have a garden with veggies, not just flowers and herbs. It'll have a 10 foot fence around it, though. I can dream......

Meanwhile, remember: The earth does not belong to us, we belong to the earth.

Sorry you have such a hard time growing things that the deer won't share!

Never know what they will eat and what they won't!

Maybe they do it just to piss you off!

Have a great day now!
