The Rockets will knock off the Warriors only to choke in the finals vs the Cavaliers.
A pair of wrens have been building a nest in my hanging basket all day! It’s amazing that they can do this in a day! They’ve both been building all day and they make a fairly complicated nest, with a dome and side entrance!
Sounds like somebody wants a bet, could be Warriors and Celtics
Hottest Mother’s Day in a long time. Think it hit 1735 degrees today.
Thanks for including me in your list! But in addition to other valuable posters left out because your list is just a sampling as you said and at the risk of us sounding like Sammy Maudlin and Bobby Bittman from SCTV , you are more than worthy of being around the top of the list. Besides your much appreciated work on the Wiki along with FS, this site wouldn't be anything like it is without your consistent enthusiasm as well as efforts to keep discussions going.
Very undeserved, but really, Thanks!
Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown are growing up before our very eyes
This WRAL forecast lol. 69 every night
^they must like to party... they could have at least thrown in a 71 for good measure.
okay, I need to shut up before I get banned...
Do a 72 and your outta here
Do you think we're going to go to Hell for this?
I learned a new word today--
69 every night?
Fear the spatula. Successful basket and lap weld.
Hey Mack what is your opinion on the Green Giant Arborvitae?
They are solid trees! They just won’t grow as fast as Leylands or Arizona cypress, but the green giants should get about 2’ of growth on a year, not many pests or diseases, maybe bagworms being the biggest issue. Should top out at 30+’ tall and about 10-15’ wide after about 10-15 years
Got a lot of crabgrass in my bermuda didn't think treating before seeding since nothing was coming up

This is a great product and if you get that pesky stuff early enough, it will last the season ...
Are the Arizona Cypress’ prone to bagworms as well?
Bagworms wiped out a few of my grandpa’s leyland cypress trees
Strictly for laughs ...

Had the last game of the regular season last night for my basketball league. We only had 5 players, and the other team had 11. We won by 23.
Bagworms suck!! There is a very small window to kill them! From May till June, they are in worm form and start eating foliage to make the “bags”, IF you spray the foliage while they are eating it, they will die! Once the bags form, nothing will kill them in the bag, outside of plucking them off and burning them or squishing them!
Man lots of grass and tree talk. I've learned a lot this week. I love finding out our members have other interests besides weather !

I have never seen or heard of bagworms on Arizona Cypress! I have golden globe arborvitae around my mailbox, they are about 3’ x 3’, and have been fighting bagworms the last 3 years or so, and they suck! Also for rose lovers, be on the lookout for: Rose Rosette Virus!! It’s decimating Knock out roses especially! It’s a fungus spread by mites, been around about 2-3 years, no cure, have to dig up and burn bush, to try to save your otherones, but probably ( definitely) an exercise in futility
They will go right down the row from one, to the next, to the next, eventually taking out the whole line/row. They will take out a 40’ tree in know time!
Looks like Arizona Cypress trees are around $50 a pop for a 2-3 footer! Yikes! And seeing as how I’ll need quite a few to stagger the road line at my house, it’s not going to be cheap. It’s an investment, though, so I’m not sure if I want to go the cheap route or not. It would be well worth it to plant a Cypress tree that wasn’t prone to bagworms. I’m going to look more into it
