Drawing 328 ~ of the evergreen planters I managed to fill after a November thaw. The mums were transplanted into the flowerbed with fingers crossed they come back,  and the red dogwood, birch and fir branches from my walk could be shoved into the soft earth. I did all this in the space of a half hour, sprinting around our front yard pruning branches off of the blue spruce, cedar, Scotch pine and the spruce trees!   Now I’m ready for the coming Christmas season!
