Recently and army armed with chain saws
marched through my neighborhood.
The above picture used to be Forsythia plantings
that were eight feet tall and besides providing privacy
were always full of birds..
Who trims Forsythia this time of year..??
I use the word "trim" loosely.
Sorry about the picture..It was taken in to the sunset.
Then there are the Hydrangea bushes..same thing..
All the new buds were cut off..
There are a lot of opinions about when to cut Hydrangeas.
I always cut out the dead wood after the buds matured.
If it needed thinning out, I would cut it back to above the bud
closest to the ground.
BUT NOT WITH A CHAIN SAW !!
My Weeping Cherry no longer weeps...:(
What am I to do?? Live with it, I guess.
