After five years of us living in our house, the Cabbage Tree in the front garden grew a new sprout. Both Mr Pigalina and I were quite excited by this development.
Today we arrived home to find the sprout lying on the grass. It was too high for a person to reach and snap off and there was a longish white hair stuck to it. This has led me to the conclusion that the culprit is next door’s cat. Not satisfied with costing us money and sleep thanks to the beatings he dishes out to our cat in the middle of the night; he has now taken up tree vandalism!
I will attempt to plant the sprout in a pot tomorrow.
We noticed last year at work that one Christmas decoration was not all he seemed. He’s back for 2014 and pride of place on the tree.
I have finally relented. Mr Pigalina was going to dig out the tree in the front garden about six months ago. I pleaded the puny tree’s case – it had been aggressively pruned, we hadn’t had the greatest weather, give it until next summer.
Sorry tree but there has been not a hint of life these past six months, Mr Pigalina us looking forward to getting to work with the shovel tomorrow.
The blossoms are out on lots of trees. If you look closely you can see a Kereru (NZ pigeon). I usually go months not seeing any and today saw two in one minute.
Alas, plum tree. Your banging on the roof above our bed was your own death knell. The arborist we asked to trim the tree has advised it is too close to the house and will have to be removed altogether 😦
Tended the lemon tree this afternoon, which prompted a 3am allergy attack.
Our tree seems to have had a fright. It feels like it dropped most of its leaves overnight.
