This has been the coldest winter here in recorded history (since 1875!). And that year Lake Ontario froze. Zero degree mornings and below have become the norm. I’m feel sorry for the poor animals this year. There has been so much snow just continuing to pile up with no thaw. that all the food sources have been pretty much covered for months. The deer are scrounging for edibles anywhere they can find some. I have pretty large rhododendrons in my yard that are completely picked bare and the branches even getting eaten. The deer have been between the juniper bushes and my house and have eaten all the green needles off. They are even eating my hugh azalea in the front by the walkway. I have never seen so much “pruning” in the 45 years that I have lived here. I wish there was something I could do but I guess providing a meager lunch on my bushes is all that they can expect. I just hope my rhodies come back. They were surely beautiful last year. Surely Spring WILL come! Someday! Soon, I hope!
But, busy I have been! I have been teaching several classes at Mount Pleasant Quilt Shop in York and I have also signed on to teach some quilting classes at the JoAnn Fabric store in Greece. We’re planning to do some fun quilty stuff with scraps, of course. So anyone in the area…..”C’mon down!” I’d love to see you there!
BTW, Clue #3 will be out on March 10 at 7pm EST. (Is it still EST even though its daylight savings time?)
