We had snow in our forecast last week. Thankfully, Mother Nature didn't deliver.
The day before Halloween I swept the front porch in anticipation of the trick or treaters, and then looked at the bushes. The pyracantha was encroaching on the sidewalk (again), so I decided to give it a quick trim.
This bush is a beast. I decided to take it a step further and really went after it with the hand pruners.
There are 6 inches of sidewalk that haven't been seen in years! I love that the pyracantha has shape now and visual interest around the trunk rather than just being a solid green mass. Next spring, I'll begin trimming it back even further, but I'm very pleased with it now.
Our maple came into its full color last week.
And I finished the quilt last week! Pictures coming in the next post!
