Yeah, when it comes to tree trimming, the cheap guys are generally
butchers.  Had the same problem here.  Been weeding like a fiend all week to
beat the rain that was coming today.  Got about 75% done and beds mulched.
If we don't get too much rain - I can finish tomorrow.  Also got my peppers,
basil, marigolds, Russian sage, blue scabiosa, one lemon verbena and a
couple of my blue daze planted this morning, mulched & watered in before the
rain started.  Could hear the thunder in the distance and was moving at top
speed (for me).   Drizzling on and off now but we're supposed to get storms
this afternoon.  Got all the bird feeders topped off just minutes before it
hit.  Whew,  Daffodils are starting to fade here too but the greggii salvias
are truly gorgeous.  Good thing too because the hummingbirds will be back
very soon.  Even my Mexican bush sage is coming back, which is a nice
surprise considering the severity of our winter.  That's a stroke of luck
for sure.
