It's spring! Time to visit your garden and see what failed this year. Here's a thumbnail guide to the most common perennial disappointments.
Ragged remnants of small green shoots: crocuses chewed by rabbits
Ragged remnants of wide green shoots: tulips chewed by deer
Brittle stumps: trees or shrubs chewed by deer
Yellow/white blossoms mashed into the mud: daffodils trampled by your dogs chasing rabbits and deer
Whitish-gray patches of lawn: snow mold
Dead brown patches of lawn: dog urine
I hope you weren't expecting anything profound.
If I ever need to plead insanity, this blog will provide valuable evidence.
