There is something very satisfying about walking around the garden, scissors in hand and snipping a few things here and there.
Then choosing a favorite vase and arranging them in it.
The knockout roses, phlox and salvia are blooming in profusion right now.
Last year I didn't have any blooms on the phlox thanks to the deer.
The deer still visit, but this year I've sprayed all the flowers that bloom, with something called Deer Off and it has done a good job of keeping the deer from munching on all the blossoms.
By the way, I finished the book I mentioned last time. It was a good read and I'd definitely recommend it.
