Bad Protects Good

I made a garden early in the spring in the spot that the garden pool stood. It had all to be red flowers. We had deer problems with it. I sprayed then put out a noise maker up side down aparently which hampered it working. A huge weed grew and the flower s did well, under it's leaves. The weed covered the garden so I took it out with much labor. To day the flowers are gone eaten by the deer. I think that somewhere in the bible God said that the weeds should stay until the end because in pulling out the weeds the crop will be harmed. I am not sure this applies but I thought of it.

I am all for leaving weeds!

Pat and the boys were going to stop in here but I said no because we all still have loud, annoying coughs and I would hate it if they got it and then gave it to you guys.

there is good in everything i guess. even in a weed. the deer must have been grateful for the delicious munchies but i'm sorry they ate them.

hope you are well. thank you for such a lovely and sweet comment that you and Dr. John left me. ahh, it hit the spot on my heart as usual :) .

Nope, I'm for pulling the weeds. However, it is a shame that the deer munched on the flowers. What a naughty deer.

Some weeds are pretty. But the ones that need pulling never seem to be the pretty ones! LOL!

Nea,
Our deer are not bothered by the dog's barking. We had Maya staying here one time and the deer still came.

The parable you are refering to tells us not to try to seperate the weeds from the good before harvest, because in pulling the weeds we also harm the good. I think it is another way of saying, "LEave judgement to God." Of course, like all Bible verses, the messages are timely and versatile -- so in this vcase it means, "Pull the weed and kiss your flowers goodbye."

...God Blessed you by joining you to a man who be faithful and committed in body, soul and mind. God Blessed him just as much. What Blessings.

Happy Aniversary Betty!

We have hundreds of Marsh Deer (bitty little things) out here every morning. Our back and side yard is fenced but one morning a scared little guy jumped over and got stuck in.

He didn't have enough "run and jump" room to get out. I left the gate open for a while and kept my dogs in and the silly thing still couldn't figure it's way out.

Jon came home later and shooed him away, but what he really wanted to do was make sausage out of him.

Now looking at my ate up Vinca's... I think sausage would had been a wonderful thing to put on the grill this Labor Day weekend.

Betty, that reminds me of a story. Last year or the year before........I was out working in the yard....and usually I see Lou chasing things, squirrels and such, so I pay little attention. This day, here comes Lou running full out, as hard as his legs will go, and that is pretty fast. And right behind him was a deer. She had her head down and she meant business. All I can figure is, she had a fawn and Lou got to close. Man he was scared. So I guess deer can take care of their own.......but at night, they stay away, I give Lou the credit, but it might just be that there is enough out there to eat, my neighbor puts out corn for them.

Deer in your garden, wow, all we get is squirells and a fox, oh and the neighbours cats pooping everywhere, which is probably as annoying as the deer eating your flowers.
