Well, I must apologize for my lack of postings. I get so busy on this little magic box, that I tend
to neglect things. And for that I am sorry.
I don't know if you remember my posting on the vintage birdhouse we put together last year, here is the link to it.
I was so excited to see we did get a tenant, and the activity is so rewarding. I know they are happy campers in there, my only problem is we won't be able to clean out the house when they move out. Any ideas?
We lost a good piece of this Magnolia tree this past October in a freak snowstorm. The snow was so wet, heavy and a lot of it, that the tree couldn't withstand the weight. It had not had a chance to harden itself for winter.
Then this spring we had a early warm up and she started to bud way to early, and then we got a frost, again she took a beaten and her blossoms got frost bite and turned brown. I was hoping for a re bloom, it has yet to happen, but I am still very hopeful. The other Magnolia I have is a later bloomer and she is strutting her flowers. I will need to see if I can get some close up pics of the blossoms.
Look at this tree of dessert for the birds. They just love devouring the blossoms. This is a crab apple tree that my husband pulled a small sapling from his parents yard. He brought it home in a Styrofoam coffee cup and nursed it down in the woods until it was a plantable size in the yard. It was great to see this grow from infancy.
