The old pine rewarded me
with its song this morning as I went along using my new hand-held hedge
trimmers. The Weigela Hedge, Privet Hedge, Crepe Myrtle, all have
branches clipped. Some complain about the Privet having to be trimmed so
often. Not me. Any bits of tender limbs make mulch for my garden.
Weigela is beautiful when blooming but get rangy with long branches when
lillies and Canna over the septic tank laterals do well and dont seem
to bother the drainage because they die down each winter. Today the day
lillies have blooms and are they ever neat. One little blossom a day,
but great color. Daisies on this hillside are my favorite, plain but
clean white and bright. Cannas do not come back every year in front
because it is so cold on the ridge. However, I keep a stash of them
close to the house on the south side and those come back, so I just
Dream about these walkways!
