My Garderner's Chores

We managed to get the boxwood garden trimmed again.  That's the final time for the year!


I wish I had more formal hedged gardens.  Also, I wish I had a gardener!  If I had a gardener I'd make him trim hedges until his fingers bleed.  Here are some great examples of what I'd make my Gardener maintain.

I'm taking applications.

  1. Bring on the gravel and the boxwoods.

  2. I do believe you need Edward Scissorhand at your disposal.

    And may I just admit a hint of jealosie....that you could be done with a garden. Our green guzzlers take 365 days of handouts!!

  3. i love your taste randy! always baffled by those extra large squares of box, how do they trim those so evenly?

    if any of your applicants hail from chicago send them my way.......
