Pampas Grass continued

 Today I worked some more on cutting down the large Pampas grass growing in the yard. I have some in each corner of the front yard. It appears that there are 4 well established plants. I actually got one of them dug out of the ground. I used my electric hedger to cut them down to the ground.  Make sure you wear leather gloves when working with Pampas grass, it's blades are like sharp knives.

The Birds

My sister, that lives in another state, came for a visit. She shot these photos of the birds on my back patio.

SNOW

There will be no gardening today. We had a snowfall yesterday and it's still here. It's very pretty, but not good for folks who have to be out driving to work.

Cutting Down Pampas Grass

I'm going today to buy more "living fence" shrubs for the front of the property. I will be cutting down the Pampas grass planted by the previous owners. I like the look of it okay, but gets too large and I don't have enough space - yes I have two. The Pampas grass are surrounded by large rocks and, to me, look like snake dens.  I will post the before pictures today and the after photos later.
