earth rings around trees

That's a much slower event over hundreds of years ... and actually the soil level doesn't really rise significantly because of the leaf fall but because of the volume of the roots under the soil lifting the soil level.

Any leaves?

Is it an indoor plant or a garden plant?

Anybody knows what plant this is?

It's a rose ..... it lmight be a rambler, or one sometimes called a ground cover or procumbent rose......... not sure which one .... have a look here and see if you can find a match

Yes, anything around the base of the tree, and over  the roots near the surface will prevent oxygen getting to the roots ... they need oxygen.

Don't raise the level of the soil around a tree trunk ... you'll kill the tree.

Pdoc ((hugs)) ........  is there nowhere else you can see your psychiatrist and therapist ........ it seems to me to be totally counter productive for you to keep being tortured by revisiting the place that meant so much to you and  where it all went wrong ........... 

Have you spoken to them about how visiting that hospital makes you feel?  

It must seem like a particularly cruel form of aversion therapy

My husband washes out the sprayers from the shower cleaner that we use and they seem to work well. They don't last long but we have a regular supply so that doesn't matter.

See original post


But we do our own; we don't expect your husband to do ours too
