Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

DEER! #@*&%$


 Before!
A morning glory growing on the clematis trellis.

After! 
I should have sprayed deer repellent when I thought of it last week.
 

Now don't get me wrong.  I do enjoy seeing the deer in my woods.  Just today I watched a fawn meander up the driveway.  Cute.  But there is so much other green stuff they can eat, so leave my plantings alone.  And to help them remember that I will spray liquid fence.

Wow - they really targeted that! Interesting that they will come looking for treats when they have plenty to eat otherwise!

Oh no!!! I bet you won't forget to spray that Liquid Fence again!

I have a very healthy morning glory that they could chew off - five months old and not a bud or blossom in sight. It will undoubtedly freeze before it gets to blooming.
