This is the forecast for us later this week. While I'm very excited about moisture for our area, I'm not happy about the wind or icy parts, or the low of 6 Thursday night. Brrr.
Let's go back to Sunday when it was 70 degrees Fahrenheit. So nice for February.
I donned my new garden gloves and we pruned.
My wonderful husband spent most of his time taking care of our locust tree. We planted it the first spring we were in the house (1998). Mostly, we remove branches which are headed toward the house and any limbs that are rubbing or crossing.
While WH was busy with that, I found lady bugs!
I disturbed the lady bugs while pruning some shrubs.
We also removed three dwarf Alberta spruce trees and two arborvitae shrubs which died last summer.
We have a nice big pile of twigs which the birds are enjoying. We'll take them to the city's collection site when we get a chance. Hopefully, the pile will be buried in snow soon.
