A tall, scraggly bush has coaxed some cuss words out of my dear wife Karen and I since we moved into A Bitty Better in the Liverpool neighborhood of Galeville last October.
We never thought it would amount to much.
But instead of digging it out or cutting it down, we trimmed, pruned and hoped.
This week we’ve been awarded.
Blooms grace the Rose of Sharon.
Some are pink; others are more white.
Yet there’s still some work to be done.
A big, bare branch close to the ground seems to be a candidate for removal.
What’s coming up around your part of the world?
