Well, at least I got some yard work done before the rain started.

I'm sad to say I'm now convinced the dogwoods by the drive are all likely to die in the next few years, certainly because of that virus going around. I've already lost one, which I got around to chainsawing down today. Several others show signs of stress.

So now comes the question of how and when to replace them, and with what. Apple and walnut trees are attractive options, if not compatible ones. But I'm afraid deer would destroy apple trees.
