Plants give us oxygen for the lungs and for the soul. ~Linda Solegato
Hello everyone. I have been working really hard trying to clean and wake up my garden. Recently we had a strong storm come through the area and I had enough debris to fill my large container twice and enough left over to make a large donation to my small compost pile.
We also had a little surprise left in our backyard courtesy of our local utility company (a small, invasive Tree-Of-Heaven). We do not have any trees in our yard, but they were trimming trees in a neighbor’s yard and one fell over the fence onto our property. This tree has been sitting in our backyard for a while despite numerous calls to have it removed. The excuse I am given is, “we have to have our arborist look at the stump to see if we our crew cut it”. Dude…seriously? My husband is anxious to cut the tree but I am not happy out this. Oh well, I will let it go and make the hubby happy.
During my outdoor excursion I was happy to see I have new volunteer plants out back in an area I rarely use. I have a daffodil, coreopsis and a plant I can’t identify. I am reluctant to remove it at this point so I will watch it until I can identify it. My garden typically receives a few volunteer plants each year such as Johnny Jump Ups, tulips and red clover. I typically relocate them to my garden (free plants).
