    That is a beautiful tree. I thought Wisterias were a vine? I have 2 vines, but they haven't blossomed yet. What kind of predators do you have to worry about with your chickens loose? I watch for hawks and foxes, mostly. Merry

    Hi, Merry that wisteria is on a short pole,been there for years.My MIL trims the vines every year or it would be all over the place. [​IMG]
    We have hawks ,a couple of years ago I lost a pullet to a small hawk.One time I had to chase off someones hunting dogs with a .20 guage shotgun... I didn't shoot them,just to scare them away.
    I've heard coyotes a night around here,but the worst are the coons & stinkin' possums :mad:
    I stay out with my chickens most of the time during the day & the dogs are out with me.

    Very nice yard. I like the disc golf goal basket too. Do you play disc golf? I used to when I lived near a course. [​IMG]

    What a lovely large garden you have. Love the wisteria. Spring has arrived in Derbyshire. Spent the weekend preparing my vergetable beds ready for planting in May.

    Regards

    I'm still waiting for green. My yard is also brown and muddy! I'm waiting for the greening snow to fall. I've been buying seeds, and drooling over bedding plants for the past month![​IMG]
