This year I worried about jinxing the flowers in the garden, I could be doing it right now by just writing about them. But since we moved into the house there were flowers that I had planted that I didn't even know the color of, as the deer tend to shear off all the buds before I even get to see any color. This year all of the plants, so far, have bloomed and blossomed.
These are the day lilies I had never seen the color of.
The irises get bigger and more beautiful every year.
The hosta have filled out.
I bought two of these potted tomato plants at Costco this past Friday. I have tried the past three years to grow some vegetable only to have the deer trash my plants and smash my tomatoes. In each of the pots is a very well established tomato plant, basil and marigolds.
As much as I despise the deer sometimes, I really do think they are beautiful animals. Just tonight on the way home from the movies we saw a mother and brand new fawn crossing the street. The do hold a sweet spot in my heart.
