I'd like to compare notes as to what the deer are eating or not eating in your garden - I don't think there's really much truth in the 'deer resistant' label with few exceptions. I think deer just have personal preferences.
My deer are restricted to the front garden, where they are really enjoying lily buds and the tops off my Phlox paniculata. They seem to leave everything else - Baptisia, rose campion, astilbe, roses, day lilies, lavendar, ornamental grasses, echinacea.


I got lost in the garden this morning after walking the dog - 'garden time' strikes again. I'm sure I was there 5 minutes, but I managed to miss a doctor's appointment an hour and a half later! Bad weeds for me right now include plantain, chickweed, pearly everlasting and sow thistle. I also constantly pull out self seeded roses (mostly multifloras), hollyhock, rose campion, and weigela. It's time to pull out my annual poppy,and just leave a few for seed.
