~Needing a Trim~

 The red barberry bushes in the front of the driveway needed a haircut badly! I'm obsessed with things like that, I like all my shrubs and bushes to look neat. You'll find me walking around the yard with my little snipers trimming things up all the time but today I had to break out the big guns, the electric hedger!


               This is what they looked like before their haircut...




                                         And here's after...

        Just waiting for my fountain grass to come up on both sides.


I know the daffodils are blocking the bushes, but they won't be there much longer.







   How about you, are you obsessed with things looking just so too?

Martina, I love your driveway entrance. So pretty. I wish we had room to do that, but we don't. We have this stupid ditch. I am the bush trimmer here, too and just started doing some of that in the last few days.

That looks beautiful what a grand entrance, we just did some TLC on our front yard now I need to add some color to the flower beds.

Hi Martina...

Oooh...your yard looks sooo pretty, Girlfriend! I don't know if I have ever seen red barberry bushes...sure are pretty and even prettier yet after you gave them a manicure! Hehe! Things are still trying to green up here at my place. We're still having spurts of cold weather on and off. Just wanted to stop by to say hello...it's been awhile since we've visited since I've been on a break! Hope that my note is finding you and your family all doing well!

Warmest spring wishes,
Chari

Your entranceway is beautiful, especially after their haircut!

Everything looks so pretty! I am obsessed with certain things, like the pillows on the sofa for instance. DH is obsessed with outdoor things...he's the one carrying the clippers around trimming every piece of grass out of order.

You did the same thing with the pavers at the end of your driveway as we just did. I love the end of your driveway with the landscaping. I've gotta show my husband this picture. Thanks for stopping by and for the invite to the giveaway. I'm going to sign up for it.

Looks very clean and tidy! And the weather looks beautiful too! :)

Ooooh, what a gorgeous entrance! You did a good job with the electric hedger, now come do mine please.

I can't believe how green everything is...we are just beginning to get buds on the trees here. Trimming bushes is hard work...you are obviously experienced! I love everything neat and tidy like you. I just figured out if I click your pictures they get big...you should post a tutorial on how to do that! I'd love to know...~Ann

Your yard and landscaping are beautiful! I do like things to be just so but they don't end up being that way very often (could it possibly have anything to do with too much time spent on the computer - no, of course not!). Our yard needs a lot of work if it would ever stop raining! Thanks for sharing your beautiful home!

Candace said...

What a beautiful yard you have! Everything is so nicely manicured. Loove it!

Linda Makiej said...
