Something has been grazing on my irises.  When I noticed it in the bed beside
the car port I thought it was my resident rabbits.  Now, I've found they've
removed the foliage from a section of the 3 gallon pots!  The bite marks look
too wide and big to be rabbits so I have to conclude that the local deer have
run out of food.  I've not seen this before and it's a long time till plants
start growing again.

<<record or other for duration of cold>>

I mention this because I've not seen it before in my years of growing irises.

 From what I've been hearing on the news, this winter has broken some
ecord or other for duration of cold.  Sorry to hear that about the
ugs, Betty.  At least the aphids don't have as much green on the irises
o feed them this winter, so I'm hoping they will get off to a slower start.
Low temperatures here this winter are still a good 10 to 15oF warmer
han they used to be, just not bouncing up and down like it used to do.
 I don't think it's gotten to the single digits this winter & it used
o drop below zero at least once every year.
This constant cold may be good for the irises, but not for my attitude!
 I don't know how you folks with "real" winter every year stand it!
ill daffodils really be starting to bloom in another 6 weeks or so?
ard to imagine this year.
