Oh no! That's sad. Have you read Larson's new book? I read Dead Wake last month, but wasn't sure I wanted to read about Churchill.

The lichen and moss-covered stone is living art. Sorry to hear about the critter damage - I wonder why they chose to go after the tree now after previously leaving it alone? Your comment about hand washing made me laugh, perhaps for the first time in the past 2 days.

It is an exciting time in the garden despite the pandemic. I am almost appreciating things in the garden even more than usual this year.
Your moss and lichen is gorgeous. Maybe I move around my stones too much to get the moss to grow on them. As they say moss won't grow on a rolling stone. tee hee.
Those dang rabbits. They ate the bottom of a blue spruce, one of those specially grown to not be too big, in my garden. I left the limbs there hoping that they would at least grow their needles back but they didn't I hate to say.

Stay healthy, Linda. I can totally relate to this post. The end-of-winter garden disappointments are tough in any time, but especially difficult when heaped on top of worries about family and friends during these especially difficult times. Our gardens are great therapy, though. :)

That's a sad situation! So difficult when we come unsuspectingly upon damage like that. I hope the tree itself survives the nibbling and you eventually find some silver lining in that sad situation. Hurrah for dirt under the nails and a different reason for hand washing.


For many of us the awakening garden is what is keeping us going. So sorry about your eaten branches. Maybe they will eventually be covered by new growth. Isn't there always something to fret over in a garden.

Your mossy shots are beautiful, and while being able to complain about garden goings on could be considered a luxury right now it doesn't diminish the pain of seeing a treasured plant damaged.
