200 (699) I have been gardening here at my current home for 13 years. There are only a few plants that I can say are 13 years old. All others have been moved, divided or thrown out. I am a VERY passionate gardener and somewhat of an artsy lady. I view my gardens as a canvas. A painting that I am forever trying to make perfect. I like to help others with inexpensive ways to garden and create art for their landscape. I will walk you through my gardens from Spring through Winter. I hope you ENJOY the stroll.

"The deer got my hostas last summer and left nothing but little stalks. I've tried inserting cuttings of sage (which supposedly they don't like) among the leaves and deer repellent sprays -- but I guess if they really are hungry, you end up on the losing end. Will daffodil bulbs in the ground actually deter them later in the season?"

"In my woodland garden I find that it is really dry. I now use soaker hoses and composted leaves. The perennials and bulbs seem to really love it. I use the soaker only when it hasn't rained in 10 days. The mature trees are saying "THANK YOU, THANK YOU". To keep the deer from eating everything I alternate several methods of making them go somewhere else. Homemade pepper spray, hanging bars of soap and human urine (sprayed with a regular garden sprayer). It lasts a couple of rains. LOL"
