Burning bushes have been growing all over the yard to the point they are taking over parts.
Similar to the burnish bushes, these Autumn Olive plants seen below are growing quite invasive. Autumn Olives are growing everywhere now along roads and near creeks/run off areas. Fortunately, Autumn Olives produce fruit in the fall of the year. They will have awesome smelling flowers that attract all kinds of insects, particularly butterflies in the spring.

Blueberry harvest will be soon! With the older blueberry plants that I composted this year, I put chop sticks in the ground around them to keep the cats from digging into the compost to do their business.
