Re: In the garden and out

The garden is maturing.  choices made 10 yrs ago aren't compatible anymore.
Along the south side is a Blue Spruce that had a redbud on each side.  These
are OK redbuds that grow to ridiculous heights.  The east one was inhibiting
growth of the spruce so I cut it down several yrs ago.  Now the west one is
too close to it.  The Pin Oak that is about 15-20 ft to the west of the
redbud has really grown too so that the rb in the middle is unnecessary for
screening.  This job should really be done when dormant so I don't have to
deal with the leaves.

Obviously, I didn't plan too well, but I don't come by this gardening stuff
naturally.  However, I'm still happy I did it this way insrtead of  having
to wait 10 yrs for a good screen.  The redbuds are cheap; they served their
purpose.  The only hitch is taking them down carefully so they don't smash
anything.  I took down 2 huge apple trees years ago without a hitch, but I
now have more prized items in jeopardy than I did then.  I'll try to get it
to fall south into the easement.
