I am bringing out the big guns - well, O.K. it's just a big spray bottle of diluted Hinder, a deer repellent. But it usually works as long as I keep spraying every time it rains.
Just look at this yew bush!
I have three of them just like this one--hardly any needles left. The smaller green one next to it was covered with snow all winter, so they did not get that one.
Last year I had no deer problem, but now that they have found my diner again, I am in big trouble. They will eat every hosta, lily and tulip as it comes up. I planted a bunch of new tulips and lilies last fall and will be heartbroken if they consume them before I even get to see them bloom.
We've been having nice spring weather (high 50's). I spent an moment or two after work yesterday considering whether I felt like raking a flower bed or two... Naahhhhh, maybe later this week.
I think I have enough handbags/totebags for a while, don't' you?
I made or bought all of these since December! There are three others that did not make it into the picture.
I still felt the need to sew a bit, so last night I worked on a few hot pads for my mother-in-law.
I have a few loose ends to finish up on some projects, then I will be ready to start gardening!
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
