Working till Dark.......

There is always something that needs touching in the garden.

Yesterday I touched the lilac, make that whacked the lilac.
Syringa, Miss Kim had finished blooming and that is the
best time to prune. I thought just an easy trim this year.

One snip, then another and another. I took half the growth
off. Why? because Syringa, Miss Kim is just going to get
bigger and bigger as the summer goes on and by Sept.
will be setting buds for next years bloom. Best to prune
hard now and then keep her in check through out the summer.
Little did I know Attilla the pruner would show up! It was
a massacre!

Guess it's time to go back out this morning and clean
up the mess and then with luck get to the studio!
