Whatever the smell of this plant, and it's really strange, the deer do not 
appear to like it, making it a definite keeper in my yard.  BTW, I noticed 
those bad babies have really been munching on the emerging rose growth.  I 
don't think I will have to do much pruning on the bushes on the outer 
perimeter of the rose bed.  I'm just grateful I still have a sense of humor 
where they are concerned.  I also must admire their ability to even get to 
the rose bushes without breaking a leg -- what with all the rain (another 1.5 
inches last night), the holes from skunks and armadillos, and the mole 
tunnels one does take a risk in walking around out there. :-)
