Spud, I have two varieties of grapes: white and Concord. To my knowledge robins or other birds don't eat them. However, something does--at least my white ones. I suspect either raccoons or possums. They also eat my persimmons. Both are climbers and will scale anything.

Randy, just before reading your post, I was going to ask a question about Robins.  Do you have grapes, and do robins or other birds eat many of them?  Same question to everyone.  I know Daniel has grapes for one.

When I lived 30 miles south of here, I had some grapes, but there were also a lot of Robins, and they ate 100% of the grapes long before they were ripe enough for me to eat.  I moved before I got around to trying netting over them.

While I live about 200 miles north of Kathy, I, too, have a lot of green shoots popping up. It's nice having chives this early. I'm just afraid my fruit trees will blossom too early and be wiped out by a freeze--the last date being in May. We'll just have to wait and see.

I just love watching two male robins hopping on the lawn in tandem, eyeing each other, ready for battle. Where one goes, the other follows--hilarious!

Daniel, I'll google the sunset zones. Sounds interesting.

Everything bloomed about two weeks early due to an unusual warm spell that lasted about four days. And we've had no sustained cold weather this winter. The buds have been setting on the star magnolias for several weeks.
Chris, that is odd about the different bloom times.

The other way around here, Kathy - the regular magnolias bloom in April/May and the star magnolias later.

That should, of course, be like you I don't trust the zoning.

The part of ky I live in has been rezoned from a six to a seven but like Ruth I don't trust it. The yearly fluctuations are just to crazy.

Joan, lilacs are outstanding here. I have five on this property that I've started from one mother plant. And I've given away at least a dozen that I started. The daffodils are in bloom now and the crocuses. Tulips are also blooming. The lilacs will bloom when the weather gets a little warmer. Usually late March early June. But the humidity is unbearable in the summer. Our part of ky is considered sub tropical but it can turn on a dime. My Star Magnolia's have already bloomed but the regular magnolias won't bloom till early June.

Randy, I like your idea of planting a tree in the former hole. Looking forward to learning what tree you find to fit that spot. Hopefully, you'll send along some photos.
