An Inverness tree


This is a red bud tree that is in our back yard. My husband took a notion to trim the trees and the results are mostly ok.....read here to learn what happened to my crab apple tree.

  1. Yikes!! I'm sure you were really surprised when your crab apple tree was eliminated as opposed to just being treated!

    Great photo of your husband pruning as opposed to cutting down the tree!


    Thanks for visiting my NorthBayPhoto blog.

  2. My wife is always concerned when I try to trim a bush. It seems I don't know when to stop. thank goodness we now live in a condo and there are no more bushes to trim.

  5. Triming and pruning... See now thats a ladies job like cutting hair.. all men know that. ;).

    Sorry to here about your Crab Apple. Is 'Hubby The Destroyer' going to buy you a nice pear or plum to replace it?

  6. I like the way Denton lives with no more bushes to trim. We are thinking about doing that as we have too much to take care of. You are lucky the trees and bushes can be trimmed by family. Here it costs an arm and leg to hire somebody to do something.

  7. Hilarious crab apple tree story. Funny how their brains work... ;D

    At least you can count on him to do repairs in and around the house. My hubby is not handy, but occasionally he tries (that's how something that needed some repair winds up being replaced).

    Nice to have some space--our backyard in Detroit is tiny.

  12. I love redbuds; our old neighbor had a beautiful one in his backyard that he cut down, and we really missed those beautiful spring blooms.

    Too bad about that crabapple, though!
