the oak trees are gloriously self pruning…

natures way. We are surrounded by oaks and were petrified until a botanist friend explained that if it is a white oak …it is very stable… even the 6 inch tall white oak saplings that spring up need much force because the tap root is immense…. the red oaks are not as hardy and can topple more easily, but that is compared to a white oak…..

Sounds like a great plan for your birds and pups though for the winter….

Now I am off to beg dh to fix my laptop keyboard…. I’m like the cobblers wife who has no shoes
