I pruned the orchards last week. I picked up most of it, but left some in my wake. It has been an extremely nice January this year. Warm afternoons and sunny skies. The grass is growing and Jeff decided to mow last week.
He picked up a few of my stray trimmings to get them out of the way and stuck them in the metal arbor in back. I noticed them this morning and went AHA! Soon the arbor in the rose garden was covered and shored up with cherry branches and the finch sock was full and the finches were happy with plenty of perching places. I had a yellow and black arbor and it was great!
