We live in a gated community on Lake Tillery, directly in front of Uwharrie National Forest. Deer hunters are not allowed to kill deer in our community. The intelligent deer just cross the road to vegetation and safety. This is why most residents do not attempt to have a flower or vegetable garden.

My garden shows that you can have flowers in a deer-infested area.
