I cut away the dead evergreens that died this past winter...orange evergreens are dead Fred.
My rib didn't like me using the lopers...I guess. Planning to transplant a rhodo there and some shade loving plants: Lady's Mantle, wild ginger, etc.

Don't cross the pollinators: Starting July 1, they're protected by law! Gov. Mark Dayton & legislators enacted 2 laws this spring unique among the 50 states. The first prohibits labeling plants as beneficial to pollinators — such as bees, ants & bats, if those plants have been treated with & have a detectable level of pesticide that is lethal to pollinators. MN is the first state with those types of laws! :www.minnpost.com/politics-policy/20

Help our Monarchs grow Butterfly or Milkweed in your gardens and don't use chemicals with bt that will kill the caterpillar stage of butterflies.

The first "place" God created was a garden...so a garden seems so right for us. When I am on my knees in a garden...speaking to Him....all the cares of the world float away.

God's Garden

THE Lord God planted a garden
In the first white days of the world,
And He set there an angel warden
In a garment of light enfurled.

So near to the peace of Heaven,
That the hawk might nest with the wren,
For there in the cool of the even
God walked with the first of men.

And I dream that these garden-closes
With their shade and their sun-flecked sod
And their lilies and bowers of roses,
Were laid by the hand of God.

The kiss of the sun for pardon,
The song of the birds for mirth,--
One is nearer God's heart in a garden
Than anywhere else on earth.

For He broke it for us in a garden
Under the olive-trees
Where the angel of strength was the warden
And the soul of the world found ease.

Dorothy Frances Gurney

The last few days we have had so many birds visiting our yard or flying over it that include: lots of robins, mated cardinals, goldfinch, blue jay, bald eagle, herons, chickadee, song sparrow, cedar waxwings, heard a catbird or a mocking bird, a little blackbird don't know what it was, and the blue birds are nesting. We have more birds than the aviary around the lakes in Minneapolis! Anyone interested in birding should love Anoka County!

Look who came to visit our yard today...Cuddles spied it from our French Doors and had to go out and take a look! Cuddles discovered a Blandings turtle in our yard this morning!
In other states they are endangered. They are protected in Michigan.

The leaves on the trees are the size of mouse ears!
Did you know: Pillbugs are a warning sign of too much water, especially in houseplants. If you are seeing them in your containers, ease back on the watering schedule.

At least 167 million acres of monarch habitat has been lost since 1996. www.startribune.com/lifestyle/healt

Watch the evening temps....remember below 55 is too cold for those houseplants you summered outside...start cleaning those pots and bringing them in for the evening and taking outside during the day...bit by bit acclimate them to lesser light so you don't have leaf drop.
