GUEST,Tinker BS: Mudcat Gardeners 2012 (200* d) RE: BS: Mudcat Gardeners 2012 28 May 12

Damn deer.

Now tall pholox has always grown nearly weed-like in my garden, more pink and white blossoms than I knew what to do with. But a mile or two away they had a controlled deer hunt last winter and for a couple of days each week eight young bucks sauntered down the mountain and hung out rather brazenly in my backyard.

I haven't actually seen them in months, but my garden has become the local smorgasboard! Pholox is clearly the Favorite, but lupine is clearly also a hit and the cone flower may never recover. They don't seem to be attracted peonies ( that would have been even less forgiveable)

But I spent the day on a 15 x 10x 10 foot patch of dog rose and I may have it all bagged to ground level with one more day. I've learnt not to try and compost the stuff, it and bittersweet are the two things I actually bag up and have taken away ( one perk of suburban living)

But the deer and I are definately not on good terms. since I've seen them sail over my neighbors 6 foot fence, I'm not sure there is much I can do....
