Oh and the wood is useless other then firewood and when it goes across a saw mill it smells like piss that's where the name comes from
Comment by king on April 26, 2014 at 9:11am
The piss elm is a hybrid that is not killed by the Dutch and spreads like wild fire it is nothing like the native elm trees it is very messy and will kill other trees if left alone
Comment by Plinius on April 26, 2014 at 3:57am

I can't imagine why, but I have no help to offer; the Dutch elm disease killed most elms here and there are not many left.

Joan. that is wonderful! I love having a freshly prepared garden bed to fill with whatever I want to grow! It's like wn artist's canvas, ready for painting.

Bergenias are nice plants. Slugs like them too much on my side of the Cascades. but I like them anyway.

Well, I leave you today with photos from my garden that Cary took. 

Do you remember that scruffy south box and garden of late winter? It has been neglected for a year while I danced with cancer. 

Well, here it is this morning after I spent two days cleaning it out: 

Here is Cary's front border planted with his choice from my back garden, of bergenia, otherwise known as Pig's ears. He has full charge of the front garden.

I just opened "History of honeybees". I will have a treat waiting for me when I read it tomorrow. My eyes are too tired just now. I glanced at the photos and was impressed with the photo:

Mesolithic rock painting of a honey hunter harvesting honey and wax from a bees nest in a tree. At Cuevas de la Araña. ca 8000 to 6000 BC)

The oldest large production facility for producing honey identified to date is from Iron Age Tel Rehov, in the Jordan Valley of northern Israel. At this site a large facility of unfired clay cylinders contained the remains of honey bee drones, workers, pupae and larvae.

Fascinating!

Good luck with your bees this year Daniel.
Joan, I'm glad you're feeling up to being outside working.
