Summer is Sizzling

Thought I would start this thread as a continuation of Karen’s “Spring is Springing” thread so that people can share summer pictures. I really enjoy seeing pictures of foliage and such from around the country. I am especially interested in deer resistant plants! I know Heather is an expert on this. In this picture, the tall flowers are cleome, the orange ones are cosmos and the bush is spirea. They are all deer resistant. Cosmos is my favorite. It loves bad soil and drought!!! Blooms all summer and reseeds itself too.

Beautiful!!! Mine put on tons of flowers this year too...then the deer found them. Now I have about 10 flowers on top and bare branches on most of the plant! They ate the leaves too! Never did that before.

Your Hydrangeas are beautiful Molly... We had several large ones in the backyard. This year a gardener cut four of them to the ground. Only one sprouted a few leaves.🙁 We've just replanted three new ones, but it's going to take a few years for them to grow. The cayenne pepper has kept the gophers away from the petunia's so far. Here's one of the newly planted Hydrangeas. The deer never touch the Society Garlic below the Kangaroo Paws. Sorry I don't know how to rotate photos. 🤔

The deer normally do not touch my cone flowers but this year they “sampled” them. Fortunately it seems they do not like them!

I am happy the deer did not destroy them like they did my white hydrangea! Here is a shot of my hydrangea where there are still some blooms. On the other side I only have stems!

Fortunately, even though the deer decimated my Hostas before the woods leafed out, they have pretty much STAYED in the woods since then. But then, The only vulnerable plants I have outside the fenced backyard are the Hostas are RIGHT agaist the house. So they DO have to be pretty hungry to dare getting THAT close.

Ahh hostas...deer candy!!! Deer come right up to my front porch here. They have no fear!!! Luckily I covered my hostas with bird netting and saved them...all but one. The netting slipped off one and they mowed it down!
