From SVBC charter member Judy Richardson.
I planted the Chokecherries out front when I first moved in five years ago. They have tiny white flowers in Spring, lovely red foliage in Fall, followed by the last red berries that feed the birds in winter.
I’ve been trying to keep the deer from eating them with not much luck, but they are tall enough to have berries at the top! Why is this a tiny moment?
Because finally I won my reward!
Yesterday I had two Eastern Bluebirds come and snack; and today I watched a Northern Mockingbird eat six berries!! He was there for a half hour before he could take off!!
