A few days ago, I brought home a bunch of flower plants for my garden to have a few more colorful subjects to photograph, but also, because I love flowers!

I was planning to put them in my little garden, but the morning I was going to plant them, I discovered that some deer came through during the night and ate my new echinacea and strawberry plant. We bought a special sprayer that detects motion to scare the animals away, but sadly, it's not working very well. On top of that, there isn't anything for the deer to eat around here now and they are desperate enough that water spraying at them isn't deterring them anymore.

After I got over being infuriated and upset (and yet, I truly can't blame them), I found some planters I'd used years ago, filled them with dirt and planted my new flowers, placing both oblog planters on our front porch where the deer can't get at them. Well ok, they COULD get to them but they'd have to walk ONTO the porch. Steve thinks they might. I really doubt it. Too confining. Let's hope they don't!

This is a beautiful Zinnia! I got a six-pack of them in assorted colors, and this one is so beautiful in hot pink! I thought it would be fun to focus on a few of the petals to see what the effect would look like, and when I showed my husband, he told me that it MUST be my pick of the day! :D Who am I to argue? :)

Jules Henri Poincaré (29 April 1854 – 17 July 1912) was a French mathematician, theoretical physicist, engineer, and a philosopher of science. He is often described as a polymath, and in mathematics as The Last Universalist, since he excelled in all fields of the discipline as it existed during his lifetime. Henri Poincaré

Sometimes I almost like your quotes nearly as much as your photographs. Almost, but not quite. Beautiful colors and use of selective focus in this.
In the wonderful Pacific Northwest, those cute, elegant, graceful deer are MAJOR pests. I tried rotating propellers, automatic noisemakers, coyote urine ... the only thing that really works is a strong fence.

Soft and yet has Fizz !! if you see what I mean ! Beautiful !

We have ... deer... raccoons(those little hands) "a big cat" (rarely visits.. and yes.. bigger than a bobcat !) ants grasshopper... grasshoppers.... did I mention grasshopper(ggggrrrr yet another hibiscus flower gone to them !) Everything comes and nibbles. cant blame them.. I put lots of food out.. and the magic thing.. water.

I have rather given up... the drought killed prime trees and many plants... the animals may as well have the rest !
