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.

Ground Hog Wars

This year I am doing battle with a ground hog or two. It seems to love to eat the leaves from the black-eyed susans and the purple cone flowers. I've resorted to chicken wire enclosures to keep the ground hog out.

The plants are putting out new leaves so I hope they will recover.

I don't expect to see many blooms this year.

One of my lilies that bloomed this week is pure white. There is a wonderful fragrance in that part of the garden from the lilies.

Almost all of the stargazer buds have opened.

Even the insects like the fragrance.
