Color Guard Yucca

 As a recognition that the deer are going to decide what we plant in the front yard, we replaced the two Elderberry bushes with two green and gold Yucca.   The Elderberry bushes were moved to the back yard inside the fence.  Our all green Yuccas are doing ok verses the deer so we are hopeful.  As insurance, we put some shaved Irish Spring Soap around the new plants.  Research indicated, the deer don't like that smell.  On the front porch, we replaced the Ligustrum with a Rhododendron.  The many flowers on the Ligustrum bush was attracting too many bees.  We hope that won't be the case with the Rhododendron.
