Melting snow and rain freeze forming sculptural icicles along the rain chain in winter. Although hidden from view, the very same thing is happening inside a typical downspout.
The fall and winter seasons are perfect for spotting invasive plant species commonly found in our woodlands and open spaces. In many cases, these plants were brought from faraway lands and planted as ornamental species within our landscapes. Birds eat the prolific fruit and help spread the plants throughout the landscape. Now many of these invasive species have become dominant. Do your part- know friend from foe, eliminate new planting of known or suspected invasive plants, and remove invasive plants where possible.
