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.
