    Mulch has become a landscape staple, almost to a fault when it is over applied, smothering roots and girdling trunks.

    Last year our serviceberry was afflicted with a whimsical looking disease; the beautiful blue berries that appear in the summer looked like something from a Dr. Seuss book. In a good year the cedar wax wings usually flock in and eat the berries as they ripen, not so last year. The strange, white tubular protrusions that the berries were covered in not only looked funny but they also kept the birds away.

  • Most of the news? This morning it’s house, outbuilding and yard cleaning.

    Vanessa came and helped for a while too. She said they got a lot done. David had a lot of stuff, so they spent much of their time with, “What is this for?” and “What about this?”
