going crazy patiently waiting for the hubs to finish up in the field - the landscaping at our "new" digs is driving me a bit batty. I don't do evergreens - yes they are low maintence but...not my cup o' tea and this pad is covered with 'em. Evergreen trees...evergreen shrubs. Trees = blocked view and our dreamy beachy area my man is planning doesn't include huge trees.
Shrubs = overgrown....like so much a small tractor will be needed to pull the suckers out of the ground. Then we have the dreaded barberry bushes - I got out the electric trimmer & cut 'em way down. They scratch you when you walk by, they seem to attract wasps (or at least they have a boatload of wasps swarming around them).
So I'm makin a list - magnolia, forsythia, azalea...bring on the color!
A month or so ago I started pulling out all the dead weedy messes around the house. We had a few hosta plants coming up. The weather turned cold & rainy so we weren't spending much time outside. I now have these gigantic hostas - do we have a prankster neighbor that put a bucket of miracle grow on the plants? I know the hostas love 'em some rain but come on - before long it's gonna be shading the 2nd story deck!
