My theme this week is Phlox and naughty deer. You see, I have both! I love my Phlox, and when they start a blooming I think it's the prettiest time of year! I also have deer here at Applestone Cottage and I mean LOTS of deer. I have always loved deer, but lately they have been getting under my skin. We have quite a few near blooming apple trees, and heck, I don't mind sharing, but I want them to wait until the apples are ripe!
I am also joining the lovely Chari, for Sunday Favorites. This was originally posted as an Outdoor Wednesday last summer.
So go say hi to Chari when your finished here and see her lovely blog!
But first ,my Phlox! I can't take all the credit because the previous owner had planted these but I am their caretaker now!
An up close pretty view.
Oh yes, I can sit at my dining room table and just enjoy the view! Come back on Thursday for my Phlox centered tablescape! And now, on to those naughty deer!
Here's the gang! Every morning and every evening they are here; they think they own the place! I yell," go away deer, go away deer" but it's no use! I run out my door and yell at them, but.......
Here's their ring leader. He snorts, he stomps his hooves and he is growing horns! I tell him to just wait a little longer, but no, he won't hear of it! ( sometimes I throw a tin can at him but he doesn't care)
The naughty do-er!! The nerve of him, just helping himself right out of my tree! They don't call the County I live in the deer capital of Wisconsin for nothing! Cindy
Welcome to Applestone Cottage. My husband Dan and I bought this cottage in the hills of Western Wisconsin 2 years ago. My husband Dan is a building construction and woodworking teacher at our local high school. He loves to build and I love to decorate on a shoe-string budget. With an empty nest looming, we wanted to take our life in a new direction. We found our little stone cottage on 2 acres surrounded by apple trees. Hence, Applestone Cottage began. Please join us as we turn on little cottage in the country into an inviting little home. Cindy
