I give up - the deer win
I took a walk around the property today - not a spring clean up, but finally dry enough to take a look around and see how things are doing. I was saddened to see that a new area I planted last year with some new shrubs and trees was attacked by deer, and pretty recently. I'm not totally surprised because we've been seeing a lot more deer than usual, but I have to wonder why we even try to plant anything new!
Sorry for the rant, but feel free to join in!
