We’ve had a really hard winter. It’s the longest time period that I’ve ever had bamboo laying down, frozen to the ground with snow still on and around it. Most of our snow has melted, but the thickness of the bamboo makes enough shade to make some snow still last around there. I was up there yesterday releasing some from the ground and watching it swing up 15′.
There are several rabbits taking advantage of the cover of a bunch of bamboo on the ground, bunched up together, hiding in there and nesting overnight. Must be several, cos there is a lot of evidence around there……….
We’ll have 50 degrees for several days now, a nice tease of spring, before the temps drop again for several days beyond that. There should be a lot of bamboo swinging back up then, and the rabbits will have to find another good place to hide from hawks and other predators.
