Oh sure…he’s cute. He’s fluffy. He’s a national symbol of spring.
He’s also a flower killing machine.
Finally (FINALLY) it was warm enough to get a little work done in the yard- work that was long overdue because of the snow we were hit with before I could finish the yard prep last fall- and what do I discover?
The Japanese maple we planted last September? Chewed down to nubs.
The hydrangea that just bloomed last year for the first time? Chewed down to nubs.
My beautiful crimson clematis? You guessed it…chewed down to nubs.
At least the weather was nice.
I hope the little monster enjoyed the feast. Next year, I’ll know better!
