Summer Days

A beautiful summer's day today.
Lower temperatures, and soft gentle rain, of which is greatly appreciated.
In-between showers, sunbursts and gentle breezes, makes for happy flowers.
Not so pretty, but necessary, wire cages enclose all flowers and shrubs that the deer like to eat.
We had new visitors to the garden today, two mother-hen wild turkeys with their babies, happily plodding along by their sides.
Turkeys are becoming a rarity in several Tennessee counties that were once in abundance, it's a sweet pleasure to know they are still here amongst us.
Hope all is well and sweet, in your little corner of the world.

Oooh those deer are so pretty. Your garden always looks so neat and tidy. Mine always looks, well, not how I want it to look. Sigh.....been working on it but still not done to my liking. I know we get an occasional deer in the garden but I have yet to see them, I am jealous
Luv Janice

We also received a nice respite from the heat, and I'm enjoying it thoroughly. Love your pictures and enjoying them always. :-)

The flowers are still beautiful even when you look at them through the wires. You are having a lot of patience with them as you want to have beautiful gardens. I like all your arrangements of the areas you photographed.
I bet the turkeys are such a bother but more of a novelty. I like your stone fence with the angel sitting on it. The urn is wonderful.

How lovely your garden is, and although I can see it takes some effort to prevent the wildlife from eating it all, they add to the beauty of it all.

I love that last picture of the deer and the old fence! I understand about having to protect your plants for we have lots of deer too. But, not as many as we did before Millie came to live with us. She chases them out of the yard, but does them no harm.
