I’ve never liked evergreens. I think it’s because I distrust their green when the rest of the world is white and brown. Something about their green is off, even in August when this photo was taken.
That being said, I planted this small windbreak late last summer when they were purchased for the corner of our yard. I read the tags before planting and realized they need more space. So I recommisoned them for a small windbreak in the pasture.
Fast-forward to now and we’ve been experiencing one of the worst winters in memory, with arctic blasts of wind dropping the windchill well below zero for days. I feel more exposed on top of this hill and am thinking I need more windbreaks. So I ordered 25 Colorada Blue Spruce from our county agency and may double or triple the order before this winter is through.
