First Day Again.....
The winds were very strong yesterday. Even with the bricks on the base the wind brought the feeder down. The squirrels were a little hesitant to eat from the ground as even the killer poodle could chase you at this level.
Before I started blogging I went out right away and righted the feeder. I moved it further away from the window now and eventually I will put it into the yard further back.
I still can not identify that green evergreen tree. There are two of them on the neighbor's lot line and they have been this green all winter and now into the spring. The needles are very soft and I bet soft is apart of its name.
Behind the blue angel you can see a couple of large buds that are sticking up behind the wings. That is a red lilac that I got from my parents property in southern Iowa and it has yet to bloom. I am hoping that this is the year with the strong large buds that it has on it.
I have known people who set this kind of rose outside in the ground during the summer. I think I would still bring it in for the winter. I guess I will need to research that a bit.
I feel badly when the stock was so big that they didn't sell. Probably all lot of them went into the garbage after I bought this one. They sat among the cyclamens and other red blooming tulips for the Valentine's season.
I don't think it is a good thing to market for that holiday and they should put them in the summer greenhouse area instead for people to buy them as a novelty.
I have no job today other than to do the stuff that needs to be done at home. I do go to attend school tomorrow so I am going to take advantage of the free time today. I hope all had a good weekend and here we are back on Monday again. Thanks for checking in today.
