When you look out the patio doors all seems calm if not a bit hot and dry what with the hose still strung out. On closer inspection you can see that it is the Ash tree is up to it's usual fall shenanigans.
No it isn't Emerald Ash Borer that is attacking as one might think, it is the Ash tree attacking my plants. Every fall when the Ash tree begins to send out it's seed it is a time of irritation to me and my poor plants.
or small, they get stuck.
Other than concrete nothing is safe, not even blooms.
The poor Staghorn fern looks like it has had an acupuncture treatment.
These seeds don't just pierce the thin skinned. They also pierce the meaty leaves as on this Kalanchoe.
So if you come by anytime soon. We won't be sitting on the patio. We will have to go out to the screen house to sit so we don't get a new piercing.
See you there.
