Sunny 75 degrees at 4:15. Pruned. Pruned. Pruned this week. Cutting back Carolina Sapphires and gardenias to clear the property line. Also trimming the foundation plantings of Needlepoint Holly, poorly sited plants, outgrowing their allotment of land on this earth. Quite a pile of yard waste arrange to thwart and puzzle the deer for a day or so.
Spirea is just about to pop open.
