Lovely, Melissa! We had Spring on Sunday – it got up to 41 degrees! I hope it won’t be too long before the real Spring, but it’s back to the teens today! On the deer subject, my daffodil beds as well as my perennials are ringed with catmint (Nepeta) – I wonder if that might be why I haven’t been bothered too much by the deer that maraud through my neighbors’ yards across the street.

    Do others of you know: is catmint a deterrent to deer? If so, I’ll plant tons of it since the deer eat everything in sight in my yard. Especially my daylilies and my hostas.
