Gone until next spring. . .
Remember those big beautiful blooms on the shrubs in my backyard that I posted pictures of, first when they were white and then this fall when they turned pink? They are now an ugly brown and sitting in a pile by the road waiting for the Town truck to come by Monday and pick them up. Those shrubs really grew by leaps and bounds this spring and summer and I loved looking at those blooms. But the frost killed them in the last week and they have to be cut and tossed. My friend, Nancy, says the term is "deadheading." Now the plants look naked and small.
