I have cut a dozen or more twigs from the now eliminated redtwig dogwood. I just happen to see in a magazine in a garden article where the sticks were all placed in a glass jar to force roots and leaves. I will have to bring mine up from the basement and put them in a glass jar.
The burning bushes have provided seeds all winter for the birds. They are greening up a little and will soon be leafed out again.
On the patio I found this chunk of wood. It must of gone flying when the chain saws were working. It is silver maple wood so it is very light weight compared to a hardwood tree. I don't quite understand the stairs step design carved on it but judging by the color on the piece it must have come from the lower part of the trunk. I suppose the chopper that took out the stumps created this.
I am home today. I do have lots of things to do. I will have to wait for it to be a lot warmer before I can go outside to work on the birdfeeder or the porch. I will just stay inside until then. Yesterdays winds made windchills that were really uncomfortable. I see that I still have a couple of small piles of snow that still are not completely melted. The one narrow strip of snow by the drive is about four feet long and 4 inches wide. It might go away today. A lot of sticks can be picked up outside but that too will wait until I can do it without freezing myself. I am really getting very tired of cold temperatures.
I hope all are safe and that you can have a good day. Thanks for stopping by my blog today.
