Quiet Day in the Garden
The garden is peaceful, sunny, and warm this morning. If you have the leisure, it’s a perfect day to grab a book, a cup of coffee or tea, and just enjoy being outside. Me…I’m going to be working hard today to prepare for several upcoming events and programs, but I’ll probably pop out to the garden a few times!
However, if you look at this picture, it’s obvious that something’s been busy!
This is the interior of the gooseberry bush in the garden. The green “sticks” are what’s left of the leaves on this particular branch. I couldn’t find any other damage, so I suspect it was one or two leaf-eating caterpillars or a rabbit. No other signs of insect or rabbit, so we’ll just have to keep an eye on it.
