WHO'S PRUNING NOW?
The wind is ripping through the trees and branches have been strewn carelessly around. The yard is a mess! The wind storm is relentless in it's damage. The only thing I can say is that it is breaking off lots of weak and diseased branches. Now doesn't that kind of "ring a bell"? What is the first thing you are told about pruning? First, remove the diseased and weak branches!
It appears that nature is helping us with pruning those branches we can't reach! During wind storms like this I often say, "God is pruning today!" You could say "Nature" or whatever else, but let's remember that we are not the ultimate gardener!
However, we are the ultimate "HELPER"! Get out there and pick up those branches. Or ask a spouse to help, or your children or grandchildren, if you are lucky enough to have them living close by.
