Round one, done! Yes, I won the first round, I trimmed the lilac bushes and came out with only two minor scratches. And now my lawn care season has officially started!
See the lilac bushes in the middle of the picture? The tops are fairly even once again. I probably ‘adjust’ them three times a year, and actually don’t mind doing the deed one bit. After all, the view beyond them is definitely worth my ‘labors’!
This ‘part’ of the season is my favorite; no bugs, still rather cool for manual outdoor labor, and the time spent is minimal compared to the time spent during the summer months.
But I’m now back ‘inside’ for a few hours; a little bit of house cleaning, a little bit of working in my studio, and a lot of undivided attention given to my two kitties. Rosie (top shelf) and Spanky just below. (Usually it’s the other way around!)
