This pic was taken after all the branches had been tied down to make them flatter and to hopefully stay on/in the truck?
It was SO high before the tie-down. HAhahahaa....I laughed when I first saw it. I said to Bill that he would never be able to drive with all that pruned off stuff!
I have been on a pruning craze lately (yeah I know, beginning of Spring or in the Fall). I have been piling up the branches and the owies! Bill took down a fair amount today as well.
I actually had a belly laugh Thurs evening when we cleared away some high, spindly, overgrown bushes and I realized there was a slim tree growing straight up in all the overgrown high branch wreckage!
Who knew?? I didn’t even know it was there! Against the house in the north side.
What a nice surprise that I hadn’t expected. There is a moral to the story somewhere, I’m sure..... #trees#shrubs#landscaping#pruning#snipping#injuries#soreness#frustration#triumph#garden#neverending#yard
I really want to say something deep and meaningful about this picture.
Or some clever wordplay around the word reflection.
But it's Sunday morning and my brain won't start. I can almost hear it going rrr-rrr-rrr like your car when it won't start. And the more you try to start it, the more the battery gets flat, and then the less likely you can start it without help.
Roll starting might work. If I roll out of bed and fall onto the floor. But it's cold out of bed and the floor is hard.
Or jump starting. But I'd have to actually get up to jump, so that's out too.
So feel free to offer your insights or reflect on reflections. I'm going back to sleep. .
There was a time when I was able to spend most of my time painting flowers and although that time has long gone I have just found all my old pictures and hung them on the wall which is very appropriate as it is British flower week #paintings#flowers#vintage#britishflowerweek
From my last post you will know that my common holly (Ilex Aquifolium) was sick and affected by chlorosis. 2 weeks and one day later it is a lot healthier and found a new home in my garden. Just proves that a plant that is sick is salvageable. #garden#gardening#holly#ilexaquifolium#shrubs#plants
