I picked up some sticks in the yard. Someone wanted to burn them right away in the firepit. I said just cover them up for another day. A piece of steel is our cover, it keeps the rain and or snow melt out of the pit.
This old hydrangea bloom held on all winter.
Eunoymous ‘Chicago Fire’ otherwise known as a Burning Bush held a few berries over the winter.
We have two trees that are just hanging on. They are Oaks that grew funny with weak branches way off the ground, that are now almost on the ground. One day we will deal with them. It was a tough winter on many of the trees. I miss my electric chain saw….I cut wood as far as my cord would go…when I talked about loading up the generator in the wagon behind the three wheeler to attack trees farther away…my chain saw mysteriously disappeared.
