If I were a more patient photographer with a better camera, and maybe a telescopic lens or two, this would be a picture of birds sitting around in some large viburnums in my back yard.
Instead, it’s a picture of a little pile of tiny radishes, truly the last harvest this season from my vegetable garden.
We should all be planting large shrubs if we have the room for them. They not only can be a “living fence”, but they also provide shelter and sometimes food for a variety of birds.
Don’t be afraid of those big shrubs. Go ahead and plant some in your garden. You and the birds will enjoy them for a lot longer than you will enjoy a little pile of fall radishes.
