“Ash Tree Management”

When I visited the Town of Holland Sheboygan County – Wisconsin site yesterday, I saw they have “Information about Ash Tree Management in the Town of Holland.”

They link to ROOTS “Restoration of Our Trees – Sheboygan.”

My poem, Seasons, is from October 24, 2019.

SEASONS

once the tree grew tall
before the Emerald Ash Borer
and then a storm

hosta plants
grew green again
around the stump
in Spring

they grew large
and flowered well
so blessed by rain
and a red begonia planter

now there is an
orange pumpkin
on the ash tree stump

and hosta leaves are gold
in the brilliant morning sun

three colors today
for my study window view
grey sky and gold leaves
evergreens

Last Saturday, Karl went to our Town of Holland Recycling Center (Sheboygan County). Someone had brought gourds to share. They add colors to the sunroom and yard.

Sometimes Karl takes some things to donate somewhere, and returns home with something “new.” I am the same way with books! Sort of a community way to share. I wonder about some of the stories. A note is on my calendar for November to prepare a Christmas donation – books, poetry journals, and music.

Country roads, wildflowers, and corn fields – we reflect upon places we visit in our area. And always good to enjoy our gardens.

Garden Work

I wrote about Karl’s work to remove the garlic mustard in our gardens last year. Looking at the yard this week, I can see that about 90% – if not more – of this invasive plant is gone. A great success so far.

And I can see how the Spring and Summer perennials have more room and are growing well.

The new poem I see today:

rain
daffodils grow and
rest on the wood path

Education note and photo:

Garlic mustard page has more information, at the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.

This picture of Garlic Mustard is from wpclipart. I am learning a little more each year.
