Sweet Things to Do For Your Valentine

---or just for someone you really like and want to let them know... A friendly old book, The MacMillan Wild Flower Book, came to me in a beautiful gesture - unexpectedly from a great educator named Irene Tully who supports some of the same causes as I do, someone I'm happy to know but wouldn't necessarily think to bring a present to....but she thought of me. So, dig around in your heart - be as gestural , loving or corporate as you like...and think who you would like to bring a smile to on this Valentine's Day. Of course, the fabulous Dianne B Garden Gift Bag has been artfully repackaged as the perfect Valentine's Day SweetHeart gift....complete with a last-forever red red rose, and you know.....it comes with lots of LOVE.

Hello Dianne;

Just read The Embrace of Footprints and have to say that the deer tracks in your picture represent a very large deer dragging it's feet through your garden looking for a meal. I'm not sure how to post comments as follow up to Dirtier but I want to leave you with a piece I include on my site. It might be helpful to gardeners with deer issues. Try this:

Deer are taking out lots of plants, shrubs and trees and are out of control in a number of eastern states. One of my favorite native plants is Trillium grandiflorum which is always on their menu. There are times when the deer population leads us to fencing but there are some things folks might consider first. Hope this might help someone.

Well, George, so much depends on the fence...

A fence that surrounds the perimeter of the property and allows the garden to grow with more than a semblance of its natural grace is one thing... but those awful fences that cage in the plants themselves defeat the whole purpose of the garden to begin with...
