Oh deer oh dear

The fall has flown by for various reasons, and I am way behind on the clean-up chores in the garden.  The colors were a bit dull this year, but I did get a few photos of some pretty leaves before they fell.

Then the frost came, and it was time to clean up the garden.  The markers you see are the labels I made for the daylilies.  My collection is growing.

Every fall, I put up deer fence to keep the deer from getting into the garden in the winter and eating all the azalea buds.  My Dad used to do this in his garden with tomato stakes and fishing line strung at 3 ft and 6 ft  height on the stakes. The theory is that they won’t jump what they can’t see and when they bump into the line they back away.  It has worked well for years.  So yesterday, we hammered in the stakes around the edge of the garden, and I strung the line.  Here is what it looks like.

However, this morning I woke up to this:

Notice they are inside the fence.  I went out and discovered that the line was broken in one spot.   More line was added this afternoon…..we shall see what develops.

Sunsets come early these days, but they sure are pretty.
