|My backyard on a gorgeous winter day in Northern West Virginia Photo: me|
As I walked in my back yard garden and looked at the things I planted my heart sank because they didn't look too good. A lot has to do with the fact that, being on the retired person's budget, the plants were small and possibly never had a chance to fight the erratic weather patterns.
The other thing is that critters chewed down the few small trees and bushes I planted, which were nothing but one or two sticks to begin with.
Here's some photos (not mine) of the things I planted:
|Variegated willow bush|
|Variegated redwood dogwood|
|Variegated redwood dogwood in winter - well my sticks are still bright red, so I'm taking that as a good sign!|
American Redbud - mine was a 2 foot stick and now is chewed down to the ground...will it sprout up? I have faith....
See you soon!
Happy gardening my friends!
