Security Breach! Security Breach! LOL
There's evidence that my Celsiana rose was snacked upon last night by (probably) a baby deer. A few branches have been nibbled...but only where there was a small gap in my lavender. I have two Hidcote lavender plants from Lowe's that I was going to put in the kitchen garden, but now they're going in the front bed. Also will probably put my hyssop and other herbs in the beds in front of the house and porch.
Luckily, there were no flowers on the damask, just some new growth, so nothing tasted that good to the deer. Some more lavender and herbs should encourage them to go back out to the pasture.
No problems yet with the fairy garden...I think the blueberry bushes are working just fine. The butterfly bushes and lilacs are helping, too. Like I've said before, the deer aren't hungry, just curious. As long as the plants in the field, taste better than the plants on the edges of the garden, I should be okay.
Anyone ever seen Disney's animated movie, Rescuers Down Under? There's a great line, where the bad guy is telling his animal....my mental capacity is twice that of yours---you pea brain! I joke with my husband, I think that might be me trying to outsmart my deer! (LOL)
