Out of sheer frustration and in an attempt to diminish the frequent bedlam, a month ago Sophie taped newspaper to the bottom one-third of our back faux French doors, resulting in a more peaceful and serene household. Not a long-term solution; at least not intended to be.
Like every great innovation in history, Sophie's solution has at least one unintended consequence. Those huge urban rodents people call deer are decimating our perennial flowers like never before -- all since the installation of these view blockers. Coincidence?
