I just got back from the dreaded meeting. I got up at 3 a.m. Four of us left at 4:30 am and just made the 9 am meeting. The meeting was not bad -- all about how to train employees to give quality customer service. I suspect I may be the one appointed to do the training, so I did pay attention. I was not the driver, so I took a few naps, but 3 am to 8 pm is still a long day. As soon as I finish this post, I will be hitting the bed as I have to be back to work at 6:45 a.m. Only two more work days and I will be taking a week's vacation. I am taking a week off to work in the gardens with emphasis on getting all of the deck containers planted. When I pulled out of my driveway at 4:00 a.m. this morning, guess what my headlights landed on? DEER EATING MORE OF MY PLANTS. They did not even run off, just looked in my direction, put their heads back down and continued chomping on my flowers. I was tempted to get out of the car and chase them out, but instead I just sighed loudly and headed to work. This is not shaping up to be a good garden year.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
