After an hour, he still lingered, but darkness fell and I had to give up.. hopefully he didn't get back in, but at this point, I'm not sure. The lovely Bren had shared some of her tomatoes with me and one of them was a Granadero, a hybrid paste type with fantastic flavour.. The plant was laden with developing fruits, but now, that plant is gnawed off to stubs. No more Granadero and with the summer we're having (cool, wet, cloudy), I don't have much hope at this point for another flush of blooms.
Anyhoo, on a lighter note, I'm in love with my neighbours poppies.. I know I wrote about poppies last month, but they're just so gorgeous.. so, here we go again. I hope your gardens are deer free! Happy Gardening..
