Last year in
the severe drought
killed a lot of tress and shrubs. In our yard we lost an oak tree, our
magnolia, fig and peach tree and my gardenia bush. I loved that bush. It was at
the corner of our house and when the bush was in bloom you could smell it.
Lovely. I missed it this spring, so my husband and I decided to replant. Well,
he does the work. I do the heavy thinking. Or maybe nagging. I wanted our fruit
trees back and especially the gardenia bush. Texas
The dead trees have been removed and new ones planted. The peach tree had several blooms which turned into tiny peaches. I was excited and then one morning we went out and all the peaches were on the ground, pecked and eaten by birds. Now we’re dealing with pesky birds. So far they haven’t bothered the figs and there are tons on the little tree. I think we need a scarecrow or something. I can remember my mom tying aluminum pans to fruit trees so the birds wouldn’t bother them. They tingled in the wind and worked, so we may resort to tying pie pans on the tree. Do you have any ideas for keeping birds away?
Have you planted anything new this spring?
