Albert the trumpet vine got his haircut yesterday. Dragging the ladder way out to him, climbing it with the long handled pruners, and then holding them above my head while I cut away last years growth is never my favorite job. And there is one tentacle that is sticking straight up from the top that I just can't reach with the pruners, no matter which side of the tree I place the ladder on.
This afternoon we're going to go buy some annuals. And other stuff, perhaps :-)
