There are so many things growing in the garden this month.
Not the least of which are tiny little tree seedling from the river birch and maple.
Tiny little green tomatoes are dangling off the tomato branch.
Between the weeding and the watering I found some other things blooming too...
Nasturtium with variegated leaves.
Purple Cone Flower
Goose Neck Loose strife
Just when I was happy with all the blooms...
I realized we had to trim the shrubs...all 31 of them.
I despise trimming shrubs and even more I despise trimming them into balls.
My husband does that.
It is such an unnatural shape but oh so suburban.
I guess you can never take the suburbs out of the man...darn it!
Eight loads of trimmings later I can hardly feel my feet and my lower back is aching.
I must admit it looks so nice...don't tell him its because of his beloved topiary shaped shrubs.
I can hardly contain him as it is.
You should hear the kids.
"Mom! Dad's got the clippers!"
Never a dull moment.
