As I walked along my arbor garden path, I looked down and saw this.
Oh, no! My luck has run out.
The deer are back.
This one has eaten the tops off all the phlox. If it ever stops raining, I will have to start spraying with a deer repellent.
Does anyone know how long it takes for basil seed to come up? I planted this with some seed about two weeks ago. If I get down there and look through the bifocals, I can see this little sprout. Do you think it's basil?
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.
