This past week was a total mixed bag of weather. Everything from 4″ inches of snow to pouring rain, and yesterday there was sunshine. I loved it.
Well, except the rain part.
I wish I would have paid more attention to all the snow on our bushes and trees though. Somehow I managed to rake all the snow off the front boxwood hedge but totally forgot about the leland cypress trees alongside the house and in the upper garden.
Luckily no tree branches broke, but still, the trees are all wonky now. I hope they bounce back because I’d really hate to have to replace them. Has this ever happened to you before? Do you think I should wrap something around them or just leave them be? Do you think the trees will be okay?
Pro Tip: Leave the dirty jobs for your husband. 😉
There were a ton of trees in the backyard of our last place and I never once had to clean up pine needles to make the yard look tidy. It took 4 truckloads to the yard waste facility to clear the side yard. Seriously. Remind me to never buy a house again that has trees planted so closely to the house.
Spring! It’s on it’s way. The tulips, daffodils, lilies of the valley and hyacinth are all popping through the soil and I couldn’t be happier. Word on the street is the temps will be in the upper 40’s to 50’s all this week. Yee-haw! It’s time to get out there and get some chores done.
Have a great week everyone,
