There were high winds in the area a few weeks ago and unfortunately we had some damage. A huge fir cracked off at the base and came crashing down.
It fell away from the house… a good thing… and crashed onto the lupine meadow.. a bad thing.
We will have the tree removed in April and take down some others as well. The house looks pretty naked now. We will have a lot more light on the east side…and the porch will get more sunlight. Can I still drink my morning coffee on the porch in my bathrobe and not scandalize the neighbors? I hope so! The wrens have lost their nesting tree so I will need to find a new location for the wren houses. I will also need to dig up all the shade plants that will no longer be in shade. There were lots of May apples under that tree. I think I my have some plants to share.
Gardening challenges never end. And a blizzard is forecast for tomorrow…
