Hello and Welcome to Garden Thursday with your hostess with the mostest Virginger.
Well we had a big change this past week, they stole a tree! Well, mum says they didn't steal it, as it was supposed to go away since it was dying. She had to pay them to take it away.
Monday a week ago a bunch of guys in orinch trucks showed up and took the tree down just far enough to get under the electrical wires. They piled every thing up and then left!
Mum said the tree was dying and was an ash tree. In some nearby spots of Whiskerconsin there is a nasty but called the Emerald Ash Borer. It attacks ash trees and kills them. Mum didn't want this tree to be a weak spot that might be a point of infection to start in our area. So away went the tree. Our other ash tree is nice and healthy.
Mum still sounds weird, specially tonight after mowing the lawn. Her breathing sounds a bit like asthma. She says once she gets a good cold drink to wash down the outside crud, she will sound better.
That is all from our garden for this week.
