Don't Hold Your Garden Bounty in My Face

Don't hold the bounty of your vegetable and flower garden up to my face on Instagram and Facebook. This year, I had the worst garden ever.
Above are my (sad) zinnias. Even with Deer-Be-Gone and No-Deer-Tonight, this usually flower-ful variety was nipped at all summer. I didn't get one damn bloom.

Here is but one of my withering hydrangeas. Last summer, they were bloomy. This summer, not so much. 
And last of all, I don't even know what this is. A mixed-breed Coreopsis Threadleaf and Long Island Daisies? Even the mulch has run away from their hideousness. To top it off, early-autumn leaves are beginning to fall on top of them. Poor things.

But I swear, I CAN garden!!  Here are shots from better, more fruitful seasons:

There's always next summer ...
