|Shrubs for free...YAY!|
Oh, the Horror!
I stood in horror as I watched my friend take the clippers to her Forsythia. It had been a nice, though admittedly, a way too big patch of brambles, for her taste anyway. I explained to her that the birds love nesting in that mess, as it provides great cover for them from neighborhood feline fiends, one of which was her own vicious pet. She continued to snip away, thoroughly ignoring my protests, until the once lovely shrub was barely more than a ball of twigs. It looked horrible.
