Here on Vancouver Island it has been a long winter. The deer are hungry and looking for a tonic for their stomachs. They have been gnawing on the bark of our Indian Plum, so much so I was concerned about the tree’s welfare.
My solution was to set up a triage station around the tree while I sewed, pinned and tied hand embroidered table cloths around the damage trunks.
The cloths were made to be sacrificed while protecting tables, now I am sacrificing them to protect living wood.
Hopefully, this will deter the deer and they will look for something else to eat.
