I am terribly tacky sometimes and have absolutely fallen in love with all the new solar powered garden toys you can buy- little strings of lights and plastic flowers and mirror balls and such that solar charge all day and blink along happily all night. I just noticed my potato plants and roses and other things that deer LOVE have not been touched this year, even though I see deer in the yard almost every night. I am thinking, that these little blinking lights are scaring them away from coming close to the house where all these things are planted. For the last 13 years, the deer have not been shy about munching right under my bedroom window, and they ate the tulips from around the house this spring before I put up about a dozen of these assorted toys.
hahah tacky is sometimes a GOOD thing.
