that have delighted the resident deer population...Dinner is Served!
Sum and Substance is a large leafed Hosta...
those bite marks are huge!
This Hosta had it's flower stalks bitten down and most of the leaves removed.
I planted it this Spring...may be moving it next Fall to the fenced back yard.
Yum Yum someone had a tasty treat.
Another Hosta that was planted this Spring...
munch munch munch.
The deer have left this Giant Rudbeckia alone...
The grasses are untouched but the Orange Crocosmia flowers have been all eaten.
They love eating roses...the tender new foliage and the flowers.
David Austin Rose William Shakespeare has not been a target yet...
perhaps because it is surrounded by Hostas
which I have decided are the snack of choice for the deer.
This is the same size as the deer that I saw walking along our side walk out front of The Humble Bungalow. I think he must need a lot of greenery to keep him feel full...don't you?

Plump Rose Hips are forming on our neighbours rose bushes.
They are really quite beautiful...
Indulged in a wee bit of pampering...
a relaxing spa pedicure with a bright red polish.
Give me a Lido Kiss
We had the family around to celebrate Mr. HB's birthday.
I cooked up a big batch of macaroni and cheese, made a couple of salads, baked a salmon, and served cupcakes with coloured sprinkles.
Mother and Aunty Jennifer got to meet Mira Louise and we had plenty of cuddles and hugs from the children...
it was a lovely evening.
Seriously The Best!
The house feels so quiet now...
I can hear
the dishwasher swishing and the linens are in the washer spinning.
I can still hear the enthusiastic voices of the little ones...
singing Happy Birthday to Grampa.
They will sustain and keep me happy until I see them again....
Life with Grand Children...
is as Good as it Gets!
