Thursday mornings have their moments...one of which I think about over a weekend. Thursdays create an opportunity to accomplish something great...namely to roll out a full, topped off yard waste bin before it gets hauled away to some magical place. It was to my wonderment this morning when a neighbor saw that my bin was un-closable because of the hundreds of Rhododendron branches I had stuffed in there, and suggested that I fill hers up as well, since she wouldn't be using it by Thursday.
It wasn't long before I hired two workers, at the affordable rate of one dollar each, and headed into the cold to do some real work on an out of control juniper, who was not only assaulting our tiny front yard, but the public sidewalk. Fortunately, the workers already had gloves, with Diegos on them, and were up for the challenge of filling the big green bin with green branches...for a little green of their own.
