  • Bush trimming suspended

    I went out to trim the bushes in front of my house, and decided to let be for the one bush. Probably enjoying the insects on the bushes. I trim individual branches; I don't use a hedge clippers.

      It looks quite at home there....you may have to forego trimming that bush for awhile.

        Within an hour, a strong rain storm blew through. No snake wants to be on top of a bush when driving rains and winds are coming through.

        in edit: last year with my yard renovation, I had hay mats to protect the grass seed. I piled them up, to overwinter, and am now working on separating the plastic mesh from the hay. I pulled up one, to find a grass snake, who tried to get away but only got tangled up with the mesh. I carefully worked to snip away the plastic to free him/her. I hope the snake has a good summer.

          At least it wasn’t a rattlesnake, which is what we find under things around here.

            Sometimes when snakes do that they are looking for birds nesting in the bushes.
