Ah, Summer, I love you.
I love the heat, I love the green, I love the playful feeling you bring.
This year our weather has been a bit odd because of all the rain we have been having. It's a bit more humid than usual, but it's so much more green around here than I am used to.
And I LOVE that!
Earlier in the season I planted these Black-Eyed Susans in front of my kitchen window. They took the place of my roses, which were killed by deer than roam around our house.
Really, I just got tired of trying to fight for territory in my own yard.
Pick your battles, right?
So, the guy at the nursery assured me that deer do not like these particular flowers, and I am happy to say that he was correct! They are growing very nicely, with tons of blooms that don't fade. They just stay bloomed.
Have a great day, friends!
