Podcast cover
Read more
I always enjoy watching the birds feast on wild berries this time of year as they head South for winter. While there is an abundance of berry shrubs in the wild, not all of them are good characters. There are a number of invasive shrubs that are spread by birds eating the berries and then pooping out the seeds. These shrubs take over habitats, crowd out natives and make the environment less hospitable for wildlife.

Podcast cover

I've been enjoying the late-summer, tall perennials in many gardens. Perennial flowers, such as "Golden Glow" Rudbeckia, plume poppy and Joe Pye weed, add a nice backdrop to other flowers and put on quite a show themselves.
