New Growth

April 22

We did what I would call an "aggressive" pruning this year in the yard. There were some hedges that were getting so tall we couldn't reach the tops even with a ladder. So down they came, pruned to a manageable height. All winter I looked at the bare sawed off branches and winced. Would the plant recover? Did we overdo it?

Here is my answer: new growth. A sweet cluster of white blossoms and healthy new leaves. Things are going to be just fine.

My daughters chase each other around the driveway and I take a moment to sit on the bench and look at the sky.
