Did Anyone Notice My Awesome Shrubs?

No No No not the pretty girl with the adorable doggies, look behind her. What do you see?
Well, to appreciate what you see, you could go find out the history of when they were merely sticks..AKA The Big Lawn Project in 102 degrees on July 4th....
If that's too much, just look below. That's what they looked like less than 2 years go.


Yeah, I'm proud of my pretty pink bushes! And yes, if you cut azaleas back to the sticks, they WILL grow back beautifully!

So awesome!!! I bet the smell is amazing..you have natural air freshners at your door.
I learned this too...if you cut stuff down to nubs, it comes back beautifully!!

I never remember to cut back our crape myrtles before they start blooming again. Now they're past the roof and getting tangled in the wires between the pole and the house. Some days, I'd like to just yank them COMPELETELY out of there so I can get to the back yard unobstructed.

But they're so pretty when they bloom....*sigh*
I want boxwoods, Devildog wants azaleas. Can't we just compromise?

Beautiful front yard! I have been working on a major redo on my yard, too.

Advise: Do these projects when you are young!!
