day, but a little on the warm side for my 'druthers.
I think it might have hit close to 80Ã‚Âº. If the weather holds, tomorrow, I will make a massive effort to kill the dratted filbert tree in my backyard!
I bought my supplies today ... tarp to lie on while I saw the tree off at ground level, disposable paintbrushes to apply the brush killer, heavy black plastic to cover it so no light gets to it. Kill! Kill! Kill!
In case you're wondering why I hate this beknighted filbert tree (hazelnut tree, to those of you in other geographical areas), a squirrel planted it right beside the trunk one of my beautiful large rhodies. The tree is growing straight up through the shrub, and my poor rhody is dying.
If the tree produced nuts, I would let it live, but it appears to be sterile. It's been there for well over 5 years, and not bourn a single filbert. :p
