When I designed my gardens, I wanted boxwood's everywhere. I planted boxwood knots and boxwood's hedgerows along all of the stone walls. Now each Spring when they burst forth with new growth, I hate them.
I am the trimmer of the boxwood's so perhaps you can understand my complaining.
This year I broke down and bought a battery operated trimmer which is vastly superior to my old electric one when it comes to handling it. The battery only lasts for a little over an hour which prolongs this tedious task though it does make me take a break sooner than I would normally. I have these miserable little suckers planted from the top of my gardens to the bottom. Maybe I'll be finished by Labor Day!
Winnie is the messiest little drinker...notice the water all over her face?
See the fan in the background? I have fans in every room of the house to keep her cool. The A/C just doesn't do it on it's own. It has been horribly hot and humid and it's not even Summer yet.
