..the bushes and garden are doing OK..one of the bigger bushes we bought is not doing great but it is surviving and our smoke bush did not take at all so we bought a new one this spring. The weather has been worse than usual this spring and early summer..which is saying something considering it is NEVER a good spring and early summer..but hopefully enough warm weather to produce some veggies!
Burning bush, dappled willow. the garden ( end of it anyway ), grapes getting started from cutting, Loki guarding a groundhog den ( they left ), ninebark, new perennial bed for plants with no place to go, rose of sharon and our new smokebush ( with the old one in the image too).
And some heating sticks for next winter..we have about 2 cord from last year and about 3 cord of softwood chunked up ( and about 2 cord of hardwood in lengths)..but we did not want to run out or be forced to process more hardwood. Not sure were we are going to stack it yet as our 2 usual storage areas are going through a makeover..
