doo removal (blecht!)
I know the soil is way too soggy to be tromping through garden beds so I just went around snapping photos of random happenings in the backyard. The lawn in itself has me worried. All our snow last year did a number on the recently installed sod. It's yet to really dry out and I fear having to replace it come spring.
Pieris that stood wedged against the back of the house got a new home by the upper deck during the backyard renovation. It was supposed to be a temporary move but I rather enjoy the privacy it affords that spot. The new location also allows for better views of the trunk, which I had never really noticed. Apparently over the years it has twisted and wrenched its way upward.
pictoral would be complete without a squirrel shot? I have to say, these little guys (knock on wood) have pretty much ignored this year's emerging bulbs. They obviously are well fed so the source of grub must be somewhere close. Neighbors' bird feeders perhaps?
