Truth is worth finding
Norm says;
Don't waste a good Christmas tree
It makes a wonderful place for the birds to sit on cold days and a great feeder too.
Coat pine cones with peanut butter and roll in seeds, toss or tie them in the tree.
Scatter dried bread crumbs in the branches.
String popcorn on the tree,or just toss it , the branches will catch it, and the birds will love it.

If you don't feed the birds , cut the branches and lay over the perennial bed.
It is a good cover and prevents heaving from the spring freeze and thaw.
In the spring use the needles to mulch acid loving plants such as Blueberries or azaleas.

Life in the Garden

A place to see the ever changing life in the gardens I tend. My garden can be a wild and weedy place. There is always something going on. Just take a look around.
