I’m very, very, very tired today. And my arms and legs look like I was in the middle of a cat fight…and lost. My hands are swollen and hurt…carpal tunnel will be hurting them for a few weeks. 😦
It’s amazing how much work we’ve done, yet have soooo much more to do. So far two truck loads and 26 trash bags…at least one more truck load and many more bags to go. There are two Arborvitae to take out, one more juniper and lots of trunks.
I’ve sketched out in my mind what we will do in that area once finished…immediately in the corner next to the church will be plants like Flutterby Bush, Russian Sage, and Lavender…then there will be an area left open facing the street for a future drive pad…then a Fruitless Mulberry tree.
Yesterday while taking a break I was just staring into that mess when five of the “teenager” scrub jays went to investigate. They loved the trunks…great place to crack open their goobers. And the black cat across the street had the funniest confused look on his face…staring up and looking around where, I’m sure, he used to lay in wait, under cover, to attack birdies.
It boggles my mind why ANYONE IN THEIR RIGHT MIND would plant junipers! There are so many prettier shrubs to plant ~ like butterfly bushes, forsythia, barberry, hydrangea, lilacs!
