I can see wild things love your garden. We don't have deer on our Island.

How fun. I love the dear and raccoons. Although pests at times they are no doubt beautiful. What kind of deer are those?

Sandra said...

How pretty! And...I like how you added the song in to your pictures. :)
Have a blessed day
Sincerely, Sandra

Hi Pauline, this is the only time these critters are cute and Great shots!

Those are some nice photos. The raccoon in the birdfeeder is cool. Don't want them in our garden, those all eat too much.

Dear Pauline,

Thank you for stopping by Rose Cottage Gardens and Farm for such a lovely chat! I am so delighted you came!

Your gardens are amazing! Your roses are spectucular--I just adore English roses and can't get enough of them! Is your garden walled to keep the deer from feasting at a banquet?!


Joanne said...

Hi Just a quick peak before I go out what a treasure of a blog I will be back to see the roses again.

Lovely wildlife photos. With all the deer I hope you are upto speed with what is going on with Lyme Disease.

Catherine said...

I look forward to seeing more of your beautiful site!!

I have looked back at the picture on my blog of the rose and I can not remember what rose that one is. I don't know why I struggle with the names of my roses because I don't seem to have the same problem with all my other plants. I should get signs on them but I just forget. Sorry I am not more help.

I forgot to tell you also that I love the post on the critters. Wow they are great pictures.

I love the wild things in the garden as long as they are just passing through. Raccoons can get into just about anything and can be a bit of a pest knocking over flower pots. All in all I love seeing them in the garden. Just yesterday we were trying to get a photo of a wild turkey that wandered by.

Pauline this was wonderful. Wild Thing - cute! Your pictures are just like professionals in a magazine or coffee table book. Like Lynn said they are only cute in pictures because they are such pests. But we still like having them at our place if they would just keep walking. In fact I found tracks I posted today headed right for my coneflower that was peeking up out of the ground. Needless to say the coneflower was all nibbled. Sure hope it pulls through.

Thank you all for your nice comments. They are much appreciated.

Carolyn, are you bragging or complaining. Heehee!! You must be thanking your lucky stars.:)

Lynn..........or in somebody else's garden, right???:)

Joanne, thank you - I will read further into Lyme Disease. I know a little as I used to work in a medical lab, but I am sure there is more information out there now.

Debbykay, We installed a deer fence around the backside of the trees in our back garden, so the deer no longer can get at our roses there. Any roses we had "left" in the front, after years of devastation have been moved to the back. Our front has deteriorated to such a point now with the deer, that we let them do what they want and they are welcome, but we will re-land scape it as it needs a huge face lift. We will just work around it, with plants and shrubs that the deer will not touch. I am looking so forward to the challenge. People tend to think that that kind of garden could be boring, but there are a lot of beautiful flowering plants that they won't touch, like peonys, daffodils, shaster daisies, oriental poppies and more!

Debbie thank you for your reply on that rose. It looks familiar to me, but one I do not have. Could it be Louise Estes?

RG - good luck with your cone flower

Thanks again all.
