I would much rather live in an Ewok Forest than in the suburbs of LA, but since I do, I plan to squeeze in as many trees as is feasible onto the property.
The latest to join us are a plum, nectarine, and orange 🍊
Of course this means reducing the grass yet once again. (I am too lazy to do it all at once, but someday I will have killed it all, and victory will be mine)
However, I have been planning for it, and stopped watering quite a few months ago, so thankfully the removal of the relentless grass will be easier. Also, this time I have given a much larger area over to wild flowers and whatnots, because having to mow under the trees was interesting to say the least 🙄
I am very impatient to get the trees in the ground, because I plan to call a temporary cease-fire in the grass war, so I can climb up a ladder and prune the forever growing branches of this tree up above the roof line. Last year I put it off until too late, and birds had built nests ahead of me, and sigh… I just didn’t have it in me to give the babies the boot 😑
Ooh ah la, when the tree is done, I will get to prune the roses. I don’t know how to prune roses 🌹 But that’s what YouTube videos are for right. Wow do I get lost in there, it’s unbelievable what people will put online 😉
And to end with a chuckle for myself. We did not notice at the time, but when the grandbabies and I placed our new rabbit, we managed to set her upon one of Bat Bunnies dandelions. Perhaps it seemed like a good place for a rabbit since Bat Bunny was so frequently sitting there. Still, I think we will have to hip hop her a few feet away and let Bat bunny have her snack back 😋 She has several dandelions throughout the yard that she maintains quite diligently, so I try not to disturb them.
To God be the glory,
Blessings Belinda ❤️
