Getting out for some sun, and a little yard work

We have this puppy that is more like a garbage disposal, landscaper, gardener, shredder, and maybe even half goat, but actually is a  rottweiler mix. Anyway, last night at around 9 o’clock, she (Kali) brought into the house several branches from a tree type plant we have out back. I am not sure of the type of tree or even plant it might be, but it does have pretty flowers when they bloom. So to hopefully keep her from bringing anymore of the plants branches into the house, because this morning she brought in about half as much as last night, I think she would have brought in more if I had not gone out to make coffee and caught her.

So after I got the coffee going, I grabbed some pruning shears and the trashcan and proceeded to clean everything off of the plant that was from about 4 feet and below.  This plant stands about 7 feet or more as it is.  Hopefully now available in more because I did get rid of a lot of dead stuff also.  I also found a rope/heavy string that was tight around the bottom of this plant to keep the branches closer together but evidently at one point it had fallen and was not doing what it was supposed to, so I retired it around the heavier branches so would bring them more together and turned it up a little bit more after that and hopefully it will look a lot better in the next couple of weeks as this thing grows.  Plus I hope it will keep Kalli from bringing in any more of those branches because she cannot quite reach them.

Okay, time for me to go outside before it gets too hot, which will probably be around 98 according to the weather info on the internet, more than likely though, it will reach triple digits. So until later, you all have a good day and I will write back to us after noon.
