Forsythia welcomes spring in late April and May with a burst of yellow flowers promising that the bright yellow sun of summer is just around the corner. During our long weekend, work began on project windbreak. Bushes and trees are being planted all over the farm to help prepare for the arctic winds that sweep down off Snow Mountain and the back fields. I grew up with a big forsythia bush outside my parents kitchen. My parents have a bird station in front of their forsythia and it provides the perfect cover to birds while they enjoy a meal at the feeders. We planted ours in a long path to the trails out back but in full sight of our new seating area in back of the studio. The birds have found the new feeder and the first ones I saw enjoying a snack were bright yellow finches.
After a day of planting we took a walk out to water the new forsythia.
The back of the trail ten poplars were planted for a wind break and to shade the neighbors for privacy.
