So I guess spring has finally decided to arrive.
Hmm. when I moved that maidenhair fern up closer to the house I expected a few hitchhikers, but that's quite a crew. Oh well, I guess we'll find out Allium tricoccum will tolerate juglone as well.
Hey! A varmint has defaced my drift of daffodils!
Guess whatever this was won't be defacing anything though.
Not all the signs are outside. A few dozen were inside the house. Boy they sure are easier to deal with now that I've learned the double-hung window trick.
This critter is NOT a sign of spring, but of the dog days of summer (and usually a sound, not a sight). It was not happy about being dug up three or four months early either.
Now why on Earth would varmints chew holes in gasoline cans? And only the ones with gas in them! I bet they're huffing the stuff. I've often thought of pine squirrels as the delinquents of the animal world.
Holy girdling root! Of course cytospora canker-induced needle drop revealed it, so I guess that's the least of this tree's problems...
