I can't stand it any longer. The temperature is going up to 69 degrees here on Wednesday and already I'm making plans for all the outside chores I want to do. This is a good time to prune my crepe myrtles. I was looking at the Southern Living website and they refer to the pruning that most people do as "crepe murder" because they butcher the shrub so badly. The website offers great instructions on how to prune them properly.
I think I'll also prune my butterfly bush. It may be a little late in the year but I think I'll do it anyway. Last year my bush was full of blooms and attracted so many butterflies.
Just thinking about these projects is really theraputic for me. I love spring and this will be my first spring since I retired. I plan to enjoy every ray of sunshine and daffodil that blooms!
