so in front of our sweet little Farm House
are these Snowball bushes
and not just one or two
like they had babies
there are literally
generations of them
and they are TALL
and OUT of control
and buggy in the summer
and Machine Man wants to KILL them all
and Opa thinks they retain too much water too near the house to be logical
and I LOVE them
and want to save them
agrees with ME :)
so WE devised a plan
and every single time we have attempted the plan
because their stems are SO many
and SO thick
and we are ...
it would seem...
VERY wimpy chicks
see how TALL they are?
see those stubs in front?
those are DAYS worth of work!
and you can BARELY NOTICE!
it's like a bad hair cut
so i brought up my hedge cutters
and Opa brought up HIS ELECTRIC hedge trimmers
(still IN the box... because he IS ... THAT cool)
let's see what does the job
we had to go to a chain saw
those suckers are like wood!
we ended up with a HUGE burn pile!
looks great right!
the plan is...
(you're just really eager to know right?)
that with them more...
manageable, shall we say...
we can now DIG them up in the early spring,
and transplant them
along my side of the park way...
see on the left of the drive way, how it dips a bit, and there is a white birch, that is sort of...
the road way..
and I think these would look beautiful,
dotting all along my yard as people drive by...
my home is high up enough it won't hinder my seeing the street or the neighbors,
but sure will make the drive beautiful
and my view...
my neighbors LOVED the idea too
perhaps they'll help..
we'll NEED IT!
