Boston ferns & acorn ownership?

For some reason or another(it was eons ago so I have no idea) I bought Bostons Ferns for the front of the house.
I wasn't sure it would suit them as they prefer moist, humid conditions......
.......well guess what.....they are huge & about attack you!
Even I have to duck when walking under them!
 I think I mentioned in a previous post about this being a banner year for fact as I sit at my computer writing this they are "bombing" my roof.  I went outside last week to rake some of them up as the lawn mower doesn't particularly like them.  My "warm & fuzzy" neighbor came out with his blower & was working in his yard at the same time.  Not a word was spoken until Popster came home & the next thing we hear is this tirade that went something like "I'm so &*%^$* sick of &^%$#@ cleaning up these (*&%#%#$ acorns from your ^%$#*&^ trees.  When are you going to do the neighborly thing & get rid of them?"  My answer:  "The trees were here before you" 

One of the things that attracted us to this neighborhood was the fact it has such beautiful tree lined streets.  Our property has a lot of mature trees that I love.  We have cut quite few since we've lived here & I get very upset every time.  Sure it's a lot of work in the fall but I still think it's worth it.  We have trimmed the branches that were overhanging his house but I refuse to ruin perfectly good trees because a few acorns fall on his property.  Like I said the trees were there when he moved in! 

He needs to get a life or I need to put on my best Dr Dolittle & tell those lazy squirrels & chipmunks to quit teasing Molly & start picking up their share of the acorns


  1. Mieserable old G*t. One good thing, the only good thing about living here, is none of my neighbours speak to me, they can't I don't speak Spanish. Perhaps you should pretend to be even more foreign from now on!

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!


We went to JoAnne & Peter's for thanksgiving this year.  They were cooking dinner & Josh & Carol were going to be there
 Molly is always game for a road trip!

 It was gray , gloomy day & kinda chilly by the river
 Sadie is such a cutie
 We couldn't get Addie to pose as cute
 Josh got there first as Carol had to work......these dogs just love him

 I forgot to take pics of the table but everything was so good & JoAnne made apple pie!
 We spent the night & left for home after breakfast on Friday.  Our GPS sent us home a different way & we crossed the Tappan Zee bridge.  They are building a new one so lots of work going on

 One of those big cranes toppled over a few weeks ago.....they are so tall
 Look at the size of that one!
 As you know I love bridges

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
