helen chesnut: late snowfall wreaks havoc in garden

by:Runcheng Chuangzhan     2019-09-12
It\'s too much for birds and broad beans.
At the beginning of the month, on the day of my column babbling about the sound of early air and spring in the air, I ventured into the driveway to look for the Morning Post and walk into the 20 cm thick snow.
An hour after cleaning up the long driveway, I came to the local farmers market once a week and the shabby Saturday.
In both activities, the presence of suppliers has been significantly reduced from the usual crowded lobby.
Early morning in spring
The wild animals in the garden are quiet like birds, and it seems that they are starting to move.
In the middle of the night, before digging myself out, I woke up to monitor the snow through the glass door on the well.
In the thick snow, I saw the fattest raccoon I had ever seen dragging through the patio and down the central path into the back garden. Fat-
The big belly Robin Bird and the group of birds fly under the big cuckoo next to the patio.
On the other side of the House, in the front, the life of birds is colorful, just like the creatures sheltered in the wide places --
Spread the strawberry tree in the soil of the brick machine extending in front of the House and scratch the seeds.
Alas, everything is not so beautiful in the garden after the snow.
A precious and beautiful Fremontia next to the front door has fallen down and its branches fall on the driveway.
Before pulling it upright back and generously trimming its root zone with compost, I had to cut it drastically.
The best hope.
This is cute and shallow.
In the rain and wind of November, the rooted shrubs have fallen twice and survived.
Not sure this time.
Other shrubs have lost their neat shape and are cut down with the weight of the snow.
Next to my front door, a previously neat, wide oval gold cone spineer was in a mess.
I will try to pull it together and fix the rope around it in the hope that its shape will be roughly restored to its original beautiful shape, which will remind the plants how it behaves. Other splayed-
Plants, including my biggest lemon Cypress and long cherished winter daphne, may reshape their shape more effectively by pruning.
With Daphne, I will wait until it blooms for the third time.
