Spring Garden Tips
Christmas for the Birds
Add some greenery to your winter landscape.  Move your fresh cut Christmas tree into the front or backyard for added color. Place it in a snow bank or anchor it to a fence or trellis.  The extra cover is great for the birds and the evergreen foliage adds a little visual relief to the winter landscape.  Take your outdoor decorating one step further.  Add afew edible decorations for the birds. String popcorn and hang orange slices and cranberries from the tree.  Add some strands of yarn for added color and spring nesting materials for the birds.
