No Joke This Time

Saturday - 05/22/2021 — I know my Saturday posts are usually funny (or at least mildly humorous), but this one isn’t. The deer have been at it again. I have this pot between the steps up onto my front porch. I can’t even remember what used to be planted there, but the sweet violets gradually invaded and took over the whole pot.

Fine with me. I like violets.

So do the deer.

Periodically, when the plants in the pot are full and lush, the deer come and nip off all the leaves. Then the violets grow back, and the deer return. We’re on the second go-around so far this spring. Will I give up and try to grow something else in there?

Heavens, no! That would involve actual gardening, and this ole lady doesn’t do that.
