If all I grew were deer resistant plants like this one, perhaps we would not need deer fencing as included in this picture, but ya never know...

My religion is simple. My religion is kindness. Dalai Lama

Name: Alana

Out through the fields and the woods
And over the walls I have wended;
I have climbed the hills of view
And looked at the world, and descended;
I have come by the highway home,
And lo, it is ended.

The leaves are all dead on the ground,
Save those that the oak is keeping
To ravel them one by one
And let them go scraping and creeping
Out over the crusted snow,
When others are sleeping.

And the dead leaves lie huddled and still,
No longer blown hither and thither;
The last long aster is gone;
The flowers of the witch-hazel wither;
The heart is still aching to seek,
But the feet question 'Whither?'

Ah, when to the heart of man
Was it ever less than a treason
To go with the drift of things,
To yield with a grace to reason,
And bow and accept the end
Of a love or a season?

Alana, thank you for adding Frost's poem here - I think it suits this flower so well, plus he's one of my favorite poets. I think it would be great if arts and sciences and gardeners' experiences could all meet in Ella's PlantFiles.
