Yes, The Deer Ate the Yucca
Deer damage. February 2014 Well, not the entire yucca. Not yet—and there's no sign of spring around here. It's been a cold winter and food is scarce, so hungry deer seek out plants that aren't on the regular menu. The deer ignore the yucca from spring throu...
Well, not the entire yucca. Not yet—and there's no sign of spring around here. It's been a cold winter and food is scarce, so hungry deer seek out plants that aren't on the regular menu. The deer ignore the yucca from spring through fall. This is not the first winter when the yucca was ripped up ...

Dear Freda Cameron
I prefer using the term nonpreference rather than rabit resistance plants.

You don't need to take a tour to day trip from Paris to Monet's Gardens. Here are my tips.
In Paris, the weather is anything but predictable, but you cannot wait around for a sunny day. So it was with umbrellas and raincoats that my husband and two friends left our apartments in the Marais neighborhood and descended into the Saint-Paul Métro station at seven that September morning.

An easy combination to grow.
With so many varieties of monarda (bee balm) available, it sometimes comes down to a color choice. I have three favorites in my garden and monarda 'Blue Stocking' is easy to incorporate into multiple color schemes. Growing in my garden since 2008, I've used this bee balm with purple coneflowers, ...

I had avoided bright gold for years, but because I'm trying to make that area more of a meadow garden, I'm using the best self-sowing and spreading plants. Much more affordable for a big space.

Gorgeous dahlias at the botanical garden, Jardins des Plantes, in Paris, France.
 ·  Translate
Jardin des Plantes is my favorite Paris garden, and I wander through on every visit, in different seasons and it's always delightful. Huge dahlia blooms—in many forms and colors—are abundant right now. The flower trial sign indicates the varieties were created by Label Rouge and are "Les dahlias ...

Dog-friendly Fearrington is a favorite place for us to go with our puppy.
Beginning in spring and continuing in good weather, outdoor dining options include the Granary Restaurant for lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch. My favorite lunch is the chicken salad and Richard is fond of the BLT. We both agree the Granary burger is one of the best around.

What's your favorite garden phlox?
The show is big this year as I cut back the Knock Out® roses to give this mass of David more space. No regrets—the roses bloomed beautifully and will repeat. However, the crepe myrtles along the outside of the cottage garden fence will soon shade this area enough for me to replace the roses with ...

Love this trio in the cottage garden.
The cool temperatures and ample rainfall boosted the coneflower blooms to the best I've seen in years. After losing many coneflowers, including the variety featured to aster yellows disease in 2012, I'm happy to see healthy plants. One of the short varieties, echinacea 'PowWow Wild Berry' is ...
