Why do inspector required the structural diagram of the building ?
One way they survive cold temperatures on winter nights is to use cavities or nest boxes for roosting. In the garden, dahlias should not be removed until a killing frost blackens the leaves. Some gardeners mulch heavily and do not dig them. I’ve experimented with leaving them in the garden, and most make it through the Building & Pest Inspection winter, if mulched to the depth of six to eight inches.If you do dig the tubers, do so carefully to prevent breakage or damage to the potato-like roots.
Shake off as much of the dirt as you can, and lay the tuber on its side to prevent water from collecting in the hollow stems. If possible, place in the sun to dry for an afternoon, and then store temporarily in a cool, dark, moist place at least for a few days for additional drying. Then store in boxes packed lightly in dry peat moss or leaves. If the tubers begin to shrink or shrivel, sprinkle periodically with a little water. We tell ourselves that we are taking that hour back that feels so right in late April.
Neither clocks or man’s maneuvering can encompass time, because it has its own dimensions. Fox kits are beginning to be born just as young leaves appear on Valley trees. The first day of spring sprang in the Valley, bringing long awaited warm temperatures and a multitude of migrating spring birds. Make sure your blue bird boxes are cleaned out and ready for the birds. Flying squirrels begin to bear their young, and will continue to do so through early April.
Spring brings thousands of songbirds to Valley back yards to nest and raise another season’s young. The arrival of spring’s songsters is something nature lovers wait for anxiously each year. There isn’t anything quite as spirit- boosting as watching a pair of birds gather materials for a nest, and raise their young.
