"A little bit about some of the shrubs that you can plant. It also are favored by the birds. Well there are for many and and a whole bunch of them that I won't get dimension but let's just start with one of my favorites because it is a shrub. It's it's it's scrub in the woods. It is a native as being scrubbing the woods. But then it can be a wonderful small tree when it's out of the woods and standing in the sunshine. The song called Nanny Berry or era would vibe Burnham now the vibe Burnham is a large family of plants there are short round ones there are medium round ones there are call ones. They're they're mostly white flowering or light pink etc A tremendous addition to any landscape using even several of the same species but different names. This one happens to be the nanny berry. Nanny Berry is a native Norwood's it's Fall fruiting the some of the fruit are are wieder persistent. I I suppose if I were to go out and look around now if I knew where to look I would find some of of the nanny berries that have probably been already a deep-rooted if you will However they they have been a big thing there also a big thing in terms of the thickness of the branches? NEIDL mean Well unruly but they're thick enough that a cardinal for example can harbor harbor inside one of them and Build a nest and feel free to fly into the back side of the planet come across internally to the sit there their nest and so on all of which is again fund its food also during some of the year but it's also fun to find plants that Birds Birds will actually live in now. The berries are not well. Let's just go back to the the fact that the berry comes from a a white flowering plant not overwhelmingly exciting and flowers but it does produce berries that are again cranberry size there here. The blue black if you will of a grape there I've bitten into them. They're nothing I'm going to make pie. But at the same time they they are generally of fruit laden plant Robbins and BLUEBIRDS and thrashes cat. Birds Catbird by the way I heard good one. I'm going to call it midsummer for about a three week period now. I think it's a little shorter than the nesting period. But I haven't heard or seen cat birds for many a year and I remember my grandparents farm In the summertime. You you would look around to see where that can't is and you find it to be a burden it does actually meow the same as a cat. But it's just well it's one of those things now. The the nesting sites is another thing going to think about in all of these plants mentioned And then especially into the Nanny Berry as as I spoke I happen to Well grew grew up in a town home but The the circumstances were such that there was a a Shrub of this right outside my bedroom window and each of several years in a row while I was. I don't know anywhere from five to eight or nine years old somewhere there There the would build in in this plant at just about window sill height so a standing inside being careful to peek through the curtains or at least not move them rapidly and scare. You're off the parents. We could watch cardinal nest develop in that trump watch them come to fruition and then all of a sudden in Some three or or so weeks the the parents are pushing the babies out and You hold well in that case you call the neighbors until them to keep their cats inside little little birds could get going and so on so there. There's all kinds of benefits to the bird and then to us because observations. Something like that as a kid. Probably Help Ben me toward a natural oil. We'll call it profession overtime mark and I were talking about profession's taking in some side courses in geology and soils and things like that that seemed like Mickey Mouse Cork compliments to our main in studies. No no not a Mickey Mouse. Course at all we found that out the hard way Tan some other shrubs and might might might be good. Well there are some others and the plain old staghorn supermac which you gotta be careful. Because it'll send out runners up to a considerable distance and pop up new plants Lance you can chop them off. And it's not a big deal the plant itself handle some rugged sites Son Is Best of course and then to the well to the fall. fruiting eating needs of the winter birds and so on is fantastic. But we're for. That is the brilliant red foliage in the fall I don't even know how to describe that read not quite like a stop light but darn close and then it also is forage in terms of fruit for them. Robbins bluebirds thrashes catbird again. Those things will have it in that plant."
