How to go from elation to despair in 5 seconds!

Around here, the whirlybirds fly in the fall. I usually have most of my beds tucked in for the winter with a 6 mil blankie, for that reason.

In the center of my flower gardens sits a beautiful 50 year old maple tree so I know you pain first hand. The tree and I have a love hate relationship. I love that it shades the south face of my home and provides multiple light situations to experiment with flower beds and hate that it have to water said beds twice as often as I should because the tree is such a water hog. A thick layer of mulch has prevented most of the saplings but I have also let a few go and given them to friends after they reach a couple of feet. I'm proud to know that my big guy has babies out there in the world. However, for my SFG beds I am getting as far from him as possible.
