Swearing Off Trees

Kitchen window box

We have been doing a bit of traveling, mostly one or two days at a time. But I have also been spending all my free time in the gardens.
Pruning season is in full swing here.  I start up with the trees and work down. At this time I am still up. Two done, twelve to go. I have sworn off planting any more trees!

  1. This post would have been so much more attractive to me if it had been 'The Swearing of Trees'. Tolkien was good, but wouldn't have been better if the Ents shouted obscenities as they marched?

    1. Afraid the only obscenities came from my mouth as I finished the second tree and realized how many more have to be done.

  3. Window box is perfect Doc. It would make me smile every time I looked at it. I have a cottonwood and elm out back that need pruning, but I fear if I call someone, they'll charge me a fortune.

    1. Get numerous estimates and drop names of other companies and their quotes, it is one way to drive the cost down.
