Vince has been out working in the yard. I knew he was trimming the shrubs on the side of the house. I haven’t gone to look at those. I’m afraid to see what he’s done.
There are/were shrubs on the front just beyond the dining room window.
They needed a bit of trimming. They are getting kinda scraggly. The photo is the front but the back side looked the same.
I went out just a few minutes ago and this is what they now look like.
I told myself . . “What’s done is done. Don’t say anything!” My expression must have given away what I was thinking. I said “Vince! I do not want to sit at the dining room table and look out and see all that dead wood.” He said “I’ll spray paint it green!”
I think the better idea is dig them up and plant something else . . something that will not need to be trimmed.
Remind me to never ask Vince to trim my hair.

Have no fear, they will grow back and be green in a short time. We do this several times a year.

Oh Judy,,, That’s exactly what my husband would do…..At least the walkway is clear…..
Uh, what shape was he aiming for?
Uh, just what shape was he aiming for again?
Sorry, my post had a line repeat!

It will not take it long to get green again. Then he can start trimming them the way you want them.
