Bouquets and Deer

Here's a picture of one of my lavender bouquets. I'll start shipping them this coming week. This is exciting!

I wanted to make sure I didn't mislead anyone about deer and lavender in my post yesterday. Lavender does not repel deer (at least not MY deer). They don't mind smelling it. But they don't like to eat it. I have an apple tree right next to my lavender field. They walk around in the lavender field- not minding it a bit- to get to the apple tree. But they don't eat any of the lavender. So- when people say they want to plant lavender near their roses to keep the deer away, I'm not sure how well that will work. If you have any experience with planting lavender to keep deer out of areas I'd love to hear about it.
