Found Things

Today I: found things in the Garden

I spent the morning avoiding the fumes of the bathroom waterproofing, and chainsawing some dead trees in the garden.  The main victim was a mostly dead citrus that has been bugging me for months.

As the garden moves into spring its getting easier to identify what plants I have.  To my delight I've found a mulberry near the cottage (and a second mulberry outside the garden on the creek bank).  I finally identified the tree that makes all the birds go gaga, its an Abuliton (Indian mallow or Flowering Maple).  I found a Red Olive Berry tree... not a big deal in itself, but given it'll grow to 10m and is right next to the house I'm thinking I'll transplant it somewhere.  And finally, identified several Laburnum.
