Deer and gardens can coexist!

Submitted by jimwcoleman

This young buck loves to hang out beneath the California Lilac (Ceanothus L.) bushes. These beautiful bushes are only twenty feet from my gardens. I have had ZERO deer problems this season, even though the deer are right up to the doorstep. There are plenty of posts on my website ( that tell you how I do it.

I love this guy. He and I came face-to-face about a week ago ... six feet apart and staring one another down. He finally walked off. Now, he just watches me while I work the garden.

I wish people could coexist so beautifully, too. Share this with your friends. We can do this.
