This is the last area of our little paradise. This is the back of the pond area.
Our whole yard slopes down to the backyard and to the left. When my husband was digging the pond (every shovel full by hand), he put all the dirt at the top of the pond in order to dig the top pond higher. This is our smaller upper pond. It contains a gorgeous dark pink water lily and several tropical plants that spend the winter in our bay window.
This little table overlooks my vegetable garden and the pond. In the early morning it's a delightful place to have coffee.
This is what the Wisteria looked like in early spring. It actually has buds on it now for a second blooming but the Japanese beetles have eaten all the buds so they won't open. And the leaves now look like lace. Having a garden in the country can be painful. One year I waited breathlessly for a new asiatic lily to bloom only to have the deer eat the flowers just before they were to open. We've moved the lilies to the front of the house hoping that their proximity to the house would keep them from being eaten. And I spray them with Liquid Fence. So, that's it for the Close garden in June. Our garden is usually at its best in June. Feel free to send me a link to your garden, let's compare notes. Do you have a surefire way to deter deer? Chipmunks?
