I sort of like the way it looks with the greenery preventing us from seeing our neighbors house and side yard. This look is giving me visions. I am thinking more evergreens so we have this lovely green all the time. I would like to remove the big yews at the end of the patio. Just give the end a different look all together.
My DB cut some branches off the tree to use as landing areas near the feeders. He hopes to get some more natural looking pictures of birds. I hope he succeeds. The birds are quite leary of these limbs right now. I am sure they are wondering what in their world is going to happen next. Poor little dears.
We also moved the potting bench up onto the patio. I don'tknow if it will stay here but I wanted it out of the way of any tree removal or fence patching activities. It needs some attention obviously. The paint is peeling. Why did I paint this thing?? I need my head examined. I hate to paint. What was I thinking?
Don't you just love these sunny winter days? This makes me think about how most gardeners, including myself, fixate on weather. It doesn't matter if I can get outside or not. I am always wondering how the weather is going to affect the garden. Like those snowdrops and crocus that should be popping up now. Where are they? Will the sun and warm weather bring them out?? Will it also force the daffodils to continue on their journey into spring?
