It's been a while since there's been activity in the garden so let me share this weekend's adventure. We
So on Sunday, LSH put on the gloves and hauled out the loppers and shears and trimmers and cut the whole thing down! The lawn was littered with long arching thorn-covered branches. (Barberries are probably the thorniest bush in our suburban landscape repertoire. Even more than roses.)
The bad news is that we had no where to put the puptent-sized pile of pricklies. We ran out of our brown bags for lawn refuse.
In the end we re-repatriated the pile back to the shrub's original spot with the plan to purchase more bags.
And there it sits.
