antique planter, destroyed
I bartered with someone for yard work, specifically clearing out a jungle that has encroached from the back neighbor's yard. Dragging a small tree with a spread of 15 feet through a passage that is about 12 feet wide is a recipe for disaster. Charlie does not respond when he wants to just do what he wants to do, damn the consequences. The USA pot had the whole bottom broken off on one side.
He got his full value. I had my value reduced because of his not caring. He does NOT allow destruction in his yard. Urge to kill wells up!
It would not be the South without fireants. This is about one fifth of what I can see. I imagine the rocks protect a much larger nest. When we lived in Jackson, MS in the 1950s, banks along the sides of the roads would have fireant colonies that were 10 feet long and extended up the banks for five feet. This was not unusual at all.
Okay, I am tired and need food. I will be back with maybe more interesting pictures.
No proofing here!
Are you as happy with bulbs and plants that return as I am? There are only a few annuals that I will buy. Do you try to get iris bulbs from friends who have the colors you don't?
