Maybe you remember the happy little tune, I Can See Clearly Now … It’s gonna be a bright…bright… sunshiny day and so on!
Well, “seeing more clearly” has me in a tizzy today. I better go back and start from the beginning. We have evergreens and “various things” at the back of our property. The “various things” are mostly wild, bird-planted things. But, all together they have created a beautiful wall of privacy that both the birds and I love! The birds even planted a few blackberries for us!
This past week the owner of the property on the other side of the wild wall of privacy… decided to “prune” their side. As they pruned I began to see things more clearly …. like people, cars, a truck, a motorcycle. By the end of the week, I was IN SIDE — IN TEARS.
Mr. G, who knows me all too well said, “call Brad & Ryan.” (Brad and Ryan own our favorite IGC — Country Harmony) to find out what they have that will grow fast and tall! Brad and Ryan came by to assess the situation as there is a big old maple tree in that area that needs to be figured into the plan. Mr. G even called a fence company about installing a few feet of 10’ high privacy fence just for good measure.
To get things started, Mr. G and Brad decided we need a crab apple tree. Here is the biggest crab apple tree in a pot they could find! It is huge! They know my love language. :)
Take a look at Brad and Ryan acting as “trees” so we could get the placement just right. They are the best! I wish the picture was better but I guess I was just TOO far away. Even though I was far away, note that behind them you can see “various” things. Must plant more asap!
It’s not that I don’t like people. It is just that … well … I am protective of my sanctuary. To see how things looked in the fog this week, click here.
