One person’s flower is another person’s weed. I thought the moss plants growing in the iris garden were attractive. Today I find that LaVille feels differently. I wish she had told me sooner, as there are now large patches of moss growing among the irises and in the paths. So I started torching the moss plants today. I finally quit when my eyes were burning from the smoke that arose from the conflagrations straight up into my face. My advice to you is that if you purchase a torch, doing your burning when there is a slight breeze. Then you won’t stink of burned debris as I currently do.
Last evening and this morning I spent a lot of time pruning back recent grow on bushes and vines. It is amazing how much growth has taken place in the last few weeks. As I used my favorite thinning pruner that I have shown you several times, I cannot stop hoping that you have purchased this tool. The long slender blades easily reach into a plant to reach the desired stem. New growth is thin, so little mechanical advantage is needed, therefore the blades move more rapidly than those of other pruners. Need I remind you how easily they fit in your back pocket? If you lost my list of tools for the gardener, this pruner can be found on Amazon—Corona FS-4350 thinning shear.
