Trim Job with Bee's

I went with Guillerme and Wagner to trim the property that is used by the President of Babson College today. This is a big trim job and we will be there for 2 days plus. The property always has to look, well "presidential", no weeds in the beds, everything trimmed nicely, nice looking lawn with no weeds in it.

I have been noticing this year, that the Astillbe's in every one's yard have very strong colors and most of them are about 4 feet in height. I have never seen them this way before, maybe it is the rain and cool weather. The pictures are of the Astillbe that is in the perennial garden on this property. In the picture on the right, you can see how they are towering over the Yew Hedge.

Out by the carriage house the guys found a large bee hive the size of a small basketball and boys being boys, got out the bee spray. They each took turns going in as close as possible, spraying and then running as fast as they could. I just watched and enjoyed their activities.


  1. Those are such pretty flowers.

  2. Hi Laura,

    Yes, I agree wish you could have seen them in person. For some reason this year the Astillbe's where just beautiful. They were healthy, deep colors and very tall.

    Climate change I guess.
