No holiday from fence repairs

I stopped by Christmas afternoon to check 0n things and discovered another fence cut had occurred.

It was in back of the vacant lot where the old woman had lived. This time instead of cutting the bottom strands of the barbed wire and the new fence, they cut the top half.

I went out this morning and did a quick fix. I'm beginning to wonder about the wisdom of the double fencing from a maintenance standpoint.It doesn't appear to have kept the dogs out, either.

The older lupine planting appeared to be OK.

I hauled out another bag or so of trash from inside the preserve and the right of way along Hobbs Road. It was starting to look trashy.

Crosstown lupine planting

Tomorrow the usual suspects will be at Mackay Gardens in Lake Alfred to plant some more Scrub Lupine seedlings.

There will be an educational sign, too, I've heard, which is good because that is a more public site and there are more possibilities there.

The city is assisting the effort, so it's a good deal all around.

Post-fire cleanup continues

I continued working my way along the south fire lane to level the remnant piles and removing trash. I took out four bags of trash and a couple of buckets of recyclables while the ground is still clear and the trash is visible.
A freeze is forecast for Tuesday morning.
