RE: Goodbye Garden-Update!

Can't understand why anyone would object...they look so neat and healthy. 
Usually 6 hrs is enough for most flowers and fruit so maybe yours will make
it fine, especially if you can move them around to get a little more.  My
sister and brother-in-law came up for my birthday and we spent quite a bit
of time sharing gardening info and plants.  I had pulled a bunch of
articles together on punning so he got a pretty good education...actually
asked for copies of four.  Maybe these landscape "specialist" need to have
a license with some basic training...it distresses me each time I see a
beautiful tree or bush butchered or trees that have been partially buried
with dirt due to construction.  They might as well just cut them down
because they won't live long.
