Garbage

I moved into my house in 2005. Since then we have removed SEVENTEEN trees and shrubs, and still the yard is full of plants. I took out all the: arbor vitae, weed junipers, box yews, mulberries, Alberta spruce, diseased forsythia….

I still have 2 yews to go, a very nasty blue spruce, another forsythia and some euonymus. What was with this man? This house was built in the late 50’s so it wasn’t a mushroom like the tin-snip mansions they build today. Maybe he was a planter too… maybe he kept digging holes, and his wife made him put ugly things in them.

I don’t dislike all the above plants all the time, but it looked like a nuclear nursery here! And digging out yew taproots is something out of a Jules Verne novel.
