The Price of Beauty


A well-trimmed tree is a work of art. My neighbor has hers pruned every couple of years by her gardener.  This weekend, the crew showed up and did their magic.

The Japanese elm looks magnificent. Feathery, open, airy, without looking chopped.


The next morning, however, I go out to my patio and see this.  Seems like my walkway bore a bit of the brunt of their work.

No worries...when the gardener showed up for his regular Wednesday mow and trim, I pointed it out. He was over with a leaf blower immediately afterward.

It's Dragon Season


Eh, well we still got a few fruit from this plant in the corner. 


Now the question is, is this the last harvest of the summer or the first harvest of the winter?

Resuscitation


Tomatoes are annual plants. At least they're supposed to be. I look out the laundry room window and I see that the hanging cherry tomato plant is gone.


I go out to uproot it but...what's this?...there are some new green leaves coming out.


Instead of uprooting it, I give it a haircut.


All the dead trimmed away, let's give it a chance to come back.
