The ‘done’ part is the sample for Blue Lake.
I could have added a lot more ‘stuff’ to it, but I really wanted to hit a level that I think all the kids can easily attain. I’ll leave the ‘over the top’ ideas for them to discover on their own. Done!
Eaten! We do have a lot of deer around our neighborhood all the time. We are on a path, probably ancient, between two good watering holes for them and there is enough habitat that they have never needed to really leave the city. Consequently, we are also on their munching route.
My hostas this week went from this…
overnight, to this…
And it’s not just the giant hostas they like. They are happy with the small plants for appetizers.
I always joke with people that they come up and ring my doorbell when the plants aren’t watered and juicy for them! Seriously, these plants are steps outside my door! I really don’t mind sharing my plants with the deer, though. There are a lot of plants that they don’t seem to care for, like peonies and iris and the decorative grasses. They don’t bother my daylillies, roses (Ouch–thorns in the mouth!), hibiscus, lavendar, coreopsis…there is a reason I try to only plant perennials. Even if they munch the plants waaaaay down, they are not killing them, so no permanent damage.
But that giant hosta was sooooo pretty!
