BUT, I did get to do some exploring last week, and I was checking out the yew bushes. This past winter, the whitetail deer who visited our garden to eat the acorns also tucked into the yew bushes. OMC, they have really chewed back some of them almost to the "bone"! Dad says he hopes they grown back better than ever, but for now they look a lot bare. That is one of the yews behind me.
