I need to buy some trees this spring.
I’m tired today, I’ve taken two naps already (not even 3pm yet) but I feel like going to bed again already 🙂 My first nap however was disturbed when my neighbor finally had decided to take down the two spruces close to my cottage. He has wanted to take them down for a long time but hesitated since I liked the shade they gave. So now I’ll start thinking of what I vill plant close to that area but on my side of the fence.
Spruce grows too slow, the ones cut down must have been around 25-30 years old. So I think it’ll be a couple of Thuja´s instead. They’ll grow rather fast and won’t drop ant needles or cones. This is the season for sowing and I’ll start this weekend but not Thuja’s 🙂 I’ll buy some high ones of them this spring. I’ve bought way to many seeds already and I’m afraid there will be plenty more before I stop 🙂 🙂 🙂
The wind started blowing last night but surprisingly much of the rime stayed on the trees until today. I was planing on going down to the creek like usual this morning, it must have looked amazing down there with all the rime but the wind made it rather uncomfortable to walk by the fields. We won’t get any more rime for quite some time I think, next week will be warm so the snow we have now will most likely melt away. But February is usually nasty cold so we might get a chance to get more before this winter is over.
The fire is burning in the stove and I think I’ll bake a bread or two later today. But apart from that I’ll do nothing but just stay awake so the bread won’t burn 🙂
Have a great day!
