Your deer shots are beautiful! I would love to have those sweeties in my garden, even if they ate all the flowers!


Your flowers are gorgeous!


Great photos of the deer and beautiful flowers! Happy birthday to DD and Happy Anniversary to you and your husband.

So, what I need to know is are you also spraying your concoction on the daisies? That's where I have trouble... the ear-wigs distroy the dasies! They start to look really pretty and next thing I know... aurgh!!!!! Guess I may have to try it to see... please let me know if you have had any success with it on their... cause it it fouls the deer maybe it will work else where!
Your yard is lovely! Jean C.


Good job with all that yard work!! Your garden is beautiful, and your hard work is paying off! Take care and have a happy anniversary/birthday season!

Your yard is lovely.

I wonder if your concoction would work against the bunny army that lives around here? I think they are eating my corn and beans as they emerge!! I'm also missing a squash plant. I never had this much trouble with wildlife while we were on the farm!! These suburban bunnies are fearless and shameless!


How do you attract those deer! Lovely plantings--enjoy your time off and share pics of your lovely garden when you can:-)


That top picture looks like our fire pit a few weeks back. Have a wonderful Anniversary. We just had our 29th last fall. I hope Grace has a nice 17th birthday. Enjoy your break.


BEAUTIFUL PICTURES! And I do think that the deer think that you are there for their pleasure... How reversed is that! LOL

An Enchanted Cottage

Oh my gosh, I've said it before and I'll say it again... you live on a little piece of heaven on earth! Your pictures are so beautiful of your wildlife!! I just wrote a post about how my hands shake so bad when I'm taking pix of my wildlife (which is only chipmunks and squirrels! LOL) I can't even imagine what I'd be like if I had deer waltzing through the yard! Thanks for sharing such great photos! Hope the aches and pains wear off soon!...Donna


Beautiful pictures of your flowers and the deer. Thanks for the recipe of the magic concoction, I'm going to give it a try on the much smaller wild life them comes visiting my garden. Enjoy your summer.


I thought the purple iris warning sounded like an old wive's tale so I did some googling (especially since I've had a variety of iris here for 22 years & never had any turn purple. Here's a web site that might explain in case you're interested (it could save a lot of digging!). http://faq.gardenweb.com/faq/lists/iris/2002045248021678.html

Beautiful flowers.
Thanks for sharing.


I need to do this as well. Also spray for the weeds in the driveway, spray for spiders, weedwack, cut the grass...it never ends, does it?

(You do make it look pretty though)

Wonders Never Cease

My deer, you do such beautiful posts. Have fun with all the celebrations!

WOW! What nice visitors! They look so calm until they eat your daisies ;)~~~Love your blog! I just found it, and already it's a fave!~~~XXOO, Beth

happy zombie

Loving your photos... your garden is magical! We've been doing a lot of weeding and pruning these last few weeks too... and boy am I FEELING IT. We're not getting older, the ground is just getting harder and the berry bushes thicker. Not to mention the Scotch Broom is going even more crazy this year. I am not getting older. I am not getting older.

Congrats on your roses not getting eaten. Should the magic concoction ever fail... maybe you should try hanging your camera on the bushes.


Looking good...and I'm enjoying your blog too...thanks for sharing :)
