More Ugly Photos

Miss Wisty the wisteria has been very happy the last five years because we've let her have her way...and she has run amok. The party is over...with a cap O. Since The Husband isn't working as many hours as he has been all summer long we're tackling some of the more daunting tasks around the farm. Oh my...we made one heck of a mess. He's worried that we may have hurt Wisty...ya, like that's gonna happen. After hours of pruning, snipping, sawing, and pulling vines...I don't really care if she croaks. I have bleeding scratches, sore shoulders and a cranky back.
I told him I was pretty sure she would bloom next spring...if she croaks...
I'm not planting another one.

My Spouse gave me a wisteria for our anniversary this year.

The goats ate it.
