Trees! Trees! Trees! After finding a spot to plant those potted fruit trees from inside the garden, I walked around looking up into the big Oak trees in the back yard. Still lots of leaves waiting to fall.
No doubt I will be raking leaves through next March. It's that way every year.
The wild Blueberry near the front yard, now covered in Willow Oak leaves.
Love looking up into the trees!
And look at these beauties...
I don't remember there ever being so many berries. Looking like Christmas now! It won't be long however until these Holly trees will be filled with birds and we see more Robins eating the berries than any other bird.
The hardest part of moving those potted fruit trees from inside the teeny tiny garden was finding another place to plant them. We have way too many trees already.
So, right there around the little chicken pen down near the pond, where the sun shines brightly, are now three scrawny little fruit trees, a peach, an apple, and an apricot. Heaven only knows what will happen if these trees grow big and produce bunches of fruit. I suppose the tree tops will look like a giant fruit basket.
There were two really BIG potted trees inside the garden that their roots had grown through the pots and deep into the ground...the cherry tree and an Ash that I had rescued from the landfill a few years ago. I simply could not budge these two trees.
So, Friday afternoon I said to Poppy, will you help me pry those two big potted trees loose from the ground...just enough to get a saw blade under the pot? Just need your strength to rock the tree back and forth a time or two. "Now", he said! "Oh, not now", I said, "sometime".
As I went out the door to work yesterday I remembered my daddy saying, "you can do anything you set your mind to do". I carried the hatchet, our strongest shovel, and a saw. It took a while, but those trees are no longer inside the garden.
Good grief! Surely I will have more sense than to sit potted trees inside the teeny tiny garden ever again.
Enough about trees...if you're still here. :) We are supposed to have rain for the next three days. That means no working outside. :( Probably a blessing as the craft sale is next Friday and Saturday and I need to sew. Hope to be back soon.
