Chronicaling the lunacy of taming three acres in Tidewater Virginia, one square foot at a time!

"Gardens... should be like lovely, well-shaped girls: all curves, secret corners, unexpected deviations, seductive surprises and then still more curves. ~H.E. Bates, A Love of Flowers

Something is eating our birch tree!

It looks like a well orchestrated effort by a multitude of caterpillars... I have never seen them all concentrate on a single leaf like this -- it worries me!!!
In related news, our Venusta Orchard Spider must be eating well because he/she is increasing in size at a pretty alarming rate. I assume there is a maximum size for this spider; hopefully less than 2 inches!
