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.
