It's wierd when the urge to finish off a noxious project hits but I've learned to usually not resist it.

Such was the case last weekend when, in the midst of awful heat and humidity, after mowing the lawn, I decided to remove some dead branches from a pine tree on the side of our yard.  

Once I got cutting, hauling the old branches to the curb, I saw more and more deadwood.   Finishing the tree, the volunteer honeysuckle plants became more evident.  I started lopping them back.  Eventually, I had a huge pile on the curb and a remarkably clean side yard.  

Should have done this five years ago.  But I did it today.  

Man, it felt good.  

Sometimes you have to clear out the dead wood.  And just get it done.
