I have a few sumachs taken from suckers at my mothers home some 35 years ago.They are persisent in that the suckers and seeds pop up every where.you can prune them as they tend to get a bit straggly if thats the right word.they are beautifull but can get out of hand.

sounds a lovely place to be,you are very lucky and sound very happy.I find great joy in watching wild life and I know some things are not very nice to witness but it is the way nature is.

In my garden I plenty of feeders for the birds ,what ever they may be.Ihave plenty of coverage of bushes and trees for them to dart into with their off spring .This year there has been no  end of differant birds coming to the table and certainly an increase in sparrows.I was sitting in the garden one day and looking up saw high flying in the sky a bird of prey ,right over the garden.the next day He was sitting on top of the Hawthorn giving me a clear view of him a sparrow Hawk..He didt catch anything while I was about and it would only be his dinner if he did,but he must  of noticed extra activity in the garden.

I planted sweet peas in the ground and in tubs of the old fashion variety.The ones in pots looked well then began to fail,the the ones in the ground are doing well but not brillant .You have to keep picking the flowers which i have done and watered well and fed but this year is not doing at all well.
