    How to remove ivy covering a tree

    The one tree the ivy has just about killed there are very few limbs left on the tree. The other tree is very large and can be saved if I can stop the growth of the ivy.

    Oak Leaf Hydrangeas as a Standard

    The hydrangea is one of my favorite plants. I do not live in a climate that is good for the plant. I had several in my yard when I lived on the west coast.

    Flowers and Foliage at Shirakawago

    Very nice pictures, these types of pictures help to give a different idea of what Japan looks like. I always think of those little rice huts you see in the movies.

    Winter what do you do?

    The yard needs to be cleaned up, it was neglected this summer. There are 5 trees that will start to drop leaves in a few weeks, big job to get them all up before the snow starts.

    Overgrown Gardens

    It does sound like a lot of hard work but well worth it. I like to hack at and cut as much as I can to remove the unwanted overgrowth. Then I dig at the roots to get as much as I can without chemicals. Good luck.
