This weekend Craig and I decided to do a little light yard work. Once we got started though, it was hard to stop. Craig's house had some large bushes that were taking over the front of the house... a neighbor told us that the shrubs had not been trimmed in over 25 years! The shrubs made it difficult to see out of the windows and to do any work on the front of the house. Needless to say, we just had to tackle that project. So, we cut them back... WAY BACK! We have since received several comments from the neighbors... one of which jokingly told us that we were ruining the neighborhood!
We were told that it would grow back in... in time. Let's just hope it doesn't take too long!
