  1. Vicarious gardening! The deer ate my purple asters. They ate the buds off most of a dozen daylilies. The roses were especially tasty and they are even eating cone flowers. That's a first. Besides the deer, even woodchucks are in the act. We've had a couger, some foxes and our first skunk, but they don't seem to be eating. Then there are the turkeys and......I am gardening vicariously on your site! Can't imagine country living.

  2. Lovely photos. The lake is so pretty, are the storms bad in winter? I like the daisies with the ninebark, they would look good with the Cotinus I got instead because the nine bark seemed more prone to deer damage.
