This week, we got busy cutting invasives and other vegetation around planted native species in order to give the natives some room to grow.
Recently planted trees and bushes such as Silver Maple and Dogwood need a little help when non native species start to grow around them.
The pond was pretty dry earlier this week but we've had quite a bit of rain in the last couple of days so I'm looking forward to see some water in there next week.
There are more Blue Flag irises at this site than I've seen in other parts of the Don.
We also did some mulching around the native plants to provide them with some moisture. It was a hot night so we always make sure to drink lots of water.
