  1. My meadow rue struggles each year. While the deer cannot get at it and don't like it, the rabbits don't seem to mind. Heck, the rabbits around here eat my garlic chives.

    1. I thought it was rabbit resistant too....oh my.

  2. It sounds something like amazing and I like your post and your lavender photos.These are amazing. i would like to see more and amazing pictures. Thanks for sharing. Keep blogging...
