No Freezing for Us......This Time.
It is cold but not freezing. Half of the Iowa in the northeast did have a hard freeze. We may miss it but as the days keep getting colder our chances of getting frosted over will increase. I have the impatience plant in already and I notice the glory vines really don't like the cold air.
Our sky views are clear and cold so we know winter is coming. I bought the cheap tree on the left and the one on the right is a volunteer. The have been good trees but they are just like the lombardy poplar tree that live a short life and then it dies.
I won't hire anyone at this time to take them down. I am going to wait and see if winter weather won't bring down some of the limbs. The smaller one I could cut myself but the larger one is too big for me to cut. I have a friend who likes to cut with chain saws and maybe in the spring I will turn him loose on them.
My one burning bush has started to turn red. It is only turning at the very top of it so it looks like a flattop haircut. I have two mature bushes like this and every fall they turn their leaves in a different manner. The red berries are plentiful and the birds are already eating them.
I still need to get the climbing rose attached to the shed and I have mowing of weeds that I can now get to around the shed. I moved milk cans inside of the shed and threw some things away which I am not telling to any one about what it was. What one can't see, one can not remember.
I wish everyone a great Saturday. I wish everyone to be well and thank you for stopping in to my spot today.
