Pines & Birds

Posted by Caroline Hershey

Dan was grumbling as we saw hundreds of red wing blackbirds land in our pines by the house. Why grumbling? The resulting cascading shower upon shower of  helicoptering pine seeds coming our way to pile up on deck and porch means much sweeping and next spring many of these sprouting in the flower beds. Is the pine bark beetle coming our way?

flowerWe have moved our Mandeville plant from here to there, all over, this summer, trying to get it to bloom. Not until in the last month moving it to the front of the house did we finally get two blooms. That will be all and hopefully Dan will be able to get it to overwinter and we can start again next spring knowing where to put it.
