Wow, they're beautiful! It makes me regret giving up on roses.

I am such a fan of your blog. Been reading it even before I had a blog. I am sorry it has taken me so long to leave a comment. Just wanted to let you know you give lots of people joy every day. By the way, your roses are gorgeous! Twyla


Gorgeous-like a magical garden!
Thanks for the recipe for deer repellent. They've been munching my roses and flowers too.


Oh those are just gorgeous! That's it I am mixing up some of your Mister's conconction and spraying mine. I almost hit a deer this morning!

Wonders Never Cease

How lovely! I can just smell the perfume!
Whatever you're doing, it's working!


Just stunning!


These are just beautiful!....I tried growing these type of roses here in Missouri some years back and just gave up...not because of deer but mainly disease and bugs...wish I would have had your recipe then to try....wonder how this would work in the vegetable garden?


Your roses are so beautiful!! Please keep the photos coming, I love seeing them.


It looks like the tree is blooming. What a beautiful site.

So so beautiful!!


Stunning! You must be very proud of your success with the deer-nibblers! Well done! (I've saved your recipe for bark-nibbling rabbits/deer!)

Love from Kathy and the girls


Wow, your roses are gorgeous! We've had to put up deer netting around our rose bed, and it's quite an eyesore. I just yesterday put up another 7' tall deer netting 'fence' around my veggie garden, as they've been disappearing these last few days. I'm not sure it's the deer in the garden, it may be a groundhog... I'm going to have to get some clove oil, and try out that recipe! I have some peppermint oil... I wonder if that would work too? I might just try it anyway tomorrow.
