Take just a little off the top

We always say we are going to just trim the hedges back but every once in a while you have to let your self get carried away with the trimmers to ensure that the hedges don't take over the house.  
That's what we did this weekend....and it even included a little chain saw work.
The middle bush has already been trimmed some here but the one closest in the picture was one that needed some definite trimming back.

Before on the holly trees.    
During - Russel is working - I am taking pictures and doing clean up. 

Fog Horn - Leg Horn is observing the progress.
After - A little off the top is an understatement.

After  - From the front yard.  I am still loving our red shutters.  
Hunter took a nap in the back seat of the truck while we worked on trees.  He is content anywhere.  
Purple Iris
Dog Wood
 These are just a few pictures of our plants that are already blooming.  Our purple iris started blooming last week.  The hosta was only barley poking out of the ground last Sunday and this week it is huge.  The dog wood is also taking advantage of the warm weather to start flowering. 
I love the look of the house when everything is trimmed, blooming and fresh.    

I also wanted to share that it was a lazy dog/ crazy cat weekend.
