Re: ??????

I think the extra cost is worth it if you value your trees. We have
plenty of "butchers" around here. The city of Friendsville has/had a
large number of large beautiful maples. Around ten years ago they were
"butchered"; now, all are full of decay and many are already deceased.
We have a very large white oak on the backside of the house that I had
expertly trimmed and treated for a bacteria. I had to blink several
times at the cost but have never regretted it. Also, no matter who you
use, don't let them use spikes. It is equal to sticking holes all over
your body with a dirty needle. Make them use ropes. Just my advice for
what it is worth.

Not too many of us talking on here last week, it's true. Sorry to hear 
about all your nice trees but hopefully once it's cleared up they won't 
look so bad. It's sure expensive getting the work done though. 
Husband finally took a good look at the front sycamores and agreed we 
need to have them trimmed. I have cheaped out for years on that but this 
time I'm going to grit my teeth and just pay for the only good 
tree-trimmers we have locally to do it. It'll be in the low four figures 
but the cheap folks I had out to do the back trees just butchered them, 
they still look awful two years later. 
Our weekend weather wasn't so good again, but it's all relative...no 
snow or ice anyway! I promised my friend I would take her dog out since 
she is still pretty much house-bound, so Saturday morning I went out 
with him and she walked with us for a block before she got too tired. I 
decided I would do 4 miles, and I'm trying to start more intense 
exercise so I tried jogging a bit during it, which left me so tired I 
came home and slumped in front of the computer for a couple hours before 
heading into the garden. I did get some weeds pulled and a few small 
pruning jobs done before it started to rain. I was busy Sunday so 
nothing got done outside then either. At least I always have something 
to do... I'll probably start moving the patio plants out of the 
greenhouse next week, we won't get a frost bad enough to hurt them now. 
Daffodils still in full bloom, the nectarine tree is opening up just a 
couple blossoms, the peas are coming up in the veggie garden. Nothing 
else with much activity except the weeds and grass growing like crazy.

What's going on? Or not going on? 
I felt totally isolated when our power was out for four days, 
and one of the things I missed most was my online contacts 
with this group. Now after nearly a week, I have had only 
one email from the group. Is everyone out gardening? Or 
have I somehow been dropped from the list? It's a bit 
spooky not to hear anything at all from the group. 

Since we are still ice-bound there is no gardening activity. 
I have been intending to crow that my Bowiea is blooming. 
I know that it would be hard to find less impressive blooms, 
but the tiny, 1/4 inch blossoms are really lovely little 
six-petaled lily-like blooms. Anything that blooms at this 
time of the year is welcome
