We were both too tired to get up and watch the eclipse, but, boy o boy, when the moon was out later, I sure noticed the bright light right in my eyes.
I was glad to see these trilliums survived last autumn’s tree cutting. The tree had to be removed; too broken and mostly rotten. This leaves our west façade very exposed to both winter winds out of the arctic and the setting summer sun. After clean up (presently underway), I will begin transplanting new buffer plants; however, they’re so very slow-growing here, it’ll take a while for them to grow and fill in.
