You are SO creative TC! Love the divergence of the box with the shrub pics.

Susie said...

I know the shrub in the first picture is quite brittle but the grayness makes it look soft.

You are going to have to talk to me about the last picture. I'm not sure what's going on in it.

TC said...

Thanks Ms. Tina and Ms. Susie. The last picture is daff stems breaking through "solid" cardboard. And no, Ms. Susie, the shrub, a type of willow, in the first picture is actually quite soft. I gave it a much needed severe pruning back.

Terri said...

You'd better use a "hysolver" to get that box off of those daffodils. :) And, yes, I do envy you your weekend - mine was mentally exhausting!

TC said...

Ms. Terri: I didn't have to use the "hysolver" this time. But I had it there on stand-by just in case. ;~)

Darla said...

Interesting, still want that candle?

Took me a few minutes to figure them out. Was that cardboard for protection?

Life will have its way, cardboard notwithstanding. I'm glad the daffs didn't have that boulder to contend with! Was that already on your property, or did you roll it into place?

TC said...

Ms. Darla: Yes.

Ms. Marnie: The cardboard was put down last fall in order to start new beds. Evidently, we inadvertently covered some things that we forgot were there.

W2W: The boulder was already there. It's huge and you can see several shallow drill holes on top where it appears previous owners had tried to dismantle it.

Daisy said...

My daffodils are barely poking through; I'm glad, too. It's too cold for them right now.

walk2write said...

Maybe the previous owners thought there was some precious metal inside or that it was a meteorite sent by the Tralfamadorians.

TC said...

Ms. Daisy: It's still too cold here to, but the daffs don't seem to mind a little cold.

W2W: Perhaps I should paint it green? I think Krypton would be a more familiar planet than Tralfamadore. ;~)
