Goodbye Invasive Shrubs

Skidder on middle fieldTwo neighbor/friends and I worked hard this last couple of weeks on invasive plant control. One of them sprayed, and sprayed, and sprayed and the fields are now full of skeletons. Another brought his log skidder and pushed skeletons, giant autumn olives, unwanted trees, and sprouting trees off the meadows. The view from the throne rock is now about 45 degrees wider. More pictures to follow.

Laurel season is not over

I was away and feared I missed the season but plenty of bushes are still in bloom. One of the best seasons ever.

Laurel coming along

The acres of Mountain Laurel in the woods are nearing peak bloom, and it’s looking like a very good year. I enjoy a daily look at the progression. Best days probably Thursday through the weekend.
