Sorry for the lack of posts, but the others have you all covered nicely. Had some work work to do today, then I had some stuff to do in the yard that was irritating me.
Off my back porch, where I have hung the feeders, is a large white pine that had the bottom six feet of the side facing my house with nothing but dead branches and bramble. The only living thing that might have found that attractive would be turkeys, and the only turkey around these here parts got himself stuck on the roof the other day. So I hacked that all down and hauled it away, cleaned up about ten years of pine needles, repositioned the feeders, and then went and bought a couple trays of pachysandra, which is a nice ground cover, works really well in acidic soil, and is native to the SE United States (although not the kind I bought). I figure I will plant that there and it will serve as attractive cover, and I won’t have to spend the rest of my adult live trying to grow grass under a pine tree. I also transplanted a bunch of wild spearmint to some flower boxes to contain it until I can figure out where I want to put it.
How was your day?
