In the garden: woe

Slugs have discovered the pansies I planted out just a couple of days ago.
Some other unknown pest dug three of the plants right out of the ground.
My lovely geranium 'Brookside' was on its second flowering. Yesterday I saw a clump of neatly chopped stalks. The deer had eaten every flower.
Sometimes I wonder why I garden.

Oh no, damn those slugs. It's hard to damn the deer as they are such beautiful animals and generally lovely to have around, but I feel your frustration when your plants gets damaged :/
Hx
Thank you! In spite of my frustration, I spent most of the morning gardening. Just as well, as it's been raining ever since. Slugs! Ugh!
URgh, I hate slugs. I probably wouldn't garden anyway, but slimy slithery things are part of what would stop me if I did.
There really is no excuse for slugs. I'm no longer squeamish about dealing with the horrors.
