Bandaged Bush!

Well, here is our honeysuckle bush (an invasive species) in the front garden.  It is being debarked by the squirrel who has made a nest in the front ivy.  The Herbal Husband has bandaged the bush to protect it.  I'm not sure it will survive.  I alternatively love and hate it.  Yes, it is on the front of the house.  The Herbal Husband was worried that it was making a nest on the roof.  Well, he doesn't have to worry about that.  Always something to worry about!

I'm going to keep this short and sweet today.  Tomorrow the heavy rain comes and the entire garden will be exposed again.  Hopefully, not too much more snow!  Waiting for the Oscars to start.  Hope you are staying warm or cool wherever you may be.  Talk to you later.

Seldom does a nursery catalog description live up to the realities of your garden.

Hoping warmer weather is on the way. I find honeysuckle to be very invasive. I love it and love it's sweet odor. I remember when we were kids we loved to pick them and suck out the sweet stuff. No wonder the bees love it so. I didn't watch the awards but I did watch the Red Carpet. I love to look at what everyone is wearing. I went to bed at 7pm last night beat from a hard two days in my yard.

I was wondering if you would do a post about the different herbs you grow and what to do with them. I am new to using fresh herbs and last year grew some parsley and basil. I really enjoyed cooking with them and want to grow and use other herbs but don't know what to use them in. It is only me so not much fancy cooking done here. I'm just interested.

That's a great idea, Becca! I know I have posted my favorite parsley dill recipe. You can serve it cold as well as hot. Because soup in Alabama is not too cool!

P.S. Becca, I should have gone to bed at 7:00 as well! It was boring! Thanks for your comments and for stopping by!
