Bounteous Blooms

I am thrilled but puzzled by the bounty of blooms this year.

Could it be related to the fact that none of my dayilies got to get to full flower last summer?

Has the deer herd done me a favor? Probably not.

I suspect that my four-legged friends have been sublty munching on my blooms for years.

Here are some more daylilies blooming today. They just keep coming!

Daylily Update

The deer battle continues. I have pulled out all the stops.

We have fence. We have Deer Scram.

We have stakes. We have bird netting.

So far so good.

Here are a few survivors.

I cannot let the deer learn to eat my flowers or they will stay in the area and only eat my juicy flowers.

I am being cruel to be kind.  I do not believe in interfering with nature.

I do not feed the birds(except hummingbirds) because they stay in one area

and the bird’s of prey learn to hunt there most of the time

and everybody gets lazy and crowded and spreads diseases…

It’s not nice to fool with Mother Nature!

FLOW in the KNOW

The colors just keep coming, even in this heat.

Bless these seven beautiful bloomer

Changing Latitudes

I have circled the gardens every morning with my camera.

We have had some rain, so there are many blooms.

I have several more and some Spiders to share next week.

I am also spying on a little critter. I hope to post about it soon. Suspense!
