Joan's deer buffet on Long Islandcomments (9) December 6th, 2012 in blogs
Today's photos are from Joan DeRosa. She says, "This are scenes from my garden in Old Field, East Setauket, Long Island, New York. The house and grounds face west and overlook Smithtown Bay. I have been gardening here since 1988, making too many mistakes to mention. Until recently I thought the sometimes harsh winds were the greatest hazard, but that was before the deer began to take over. Now much of the garden will probably take on an ephemeral quality as it is discovered by the hungry herd." Oh Joan. How have you escaped the deer for this long? You garden is gorgeous. I hope they don't take too much of a toll in the years to come! Please do send us more photos. I sense there is much more loveliness to see...
