Hi Shar, Nice article indeed.

Love that your friend not only rides to work, but also keeps you on your toes.
LOL...always nice to know the whats and why's. I am glad the question was asked.


Even though this tree is concidered a garbage tree, I think its awsom that the animals think otherwise...and It is kind of Pretty, but then I like twisty trunks, they are cool.

Hi Judy,
Thanks, it is an interesting tree. I always like to know the "why" of things. I figure if Nature has it to offer, then it must be worth something in some way. There is one man who told me in the comment section that even it's wood is usable when dry, so that was nice to know too.

Great to hear from you, as always.

Interesting. I'm always reminding myself that weeds are only weeds because they aren't want I want or where, not because they're innately worth less. Tho it's hard to keep that in mind when so many of our plants have prickels=).

Thanks for the artical.

Hi Dreams...
Yes, I am with you there. I just spent about an hour digging in the heel of my hand trying to get a rose thorn out. Drove me crazy, and tears fell, but I won the battle. I really don't blame the rose.

And you are right about trying to find the value in a lot of those things we call weeds. It's trees, though, that I spend more time wondering about.

Thank you for writing. Always nice to hear from you, even when we discuss weeds.

Thanks, DD, it feels better all ready.

Of course it is still very early spring here, and that was from my first foray into the garden. Who knows what I will do battle with tomorrow!

You have a good spring too.
