Yup, it was just warm enough, for about 2 hours, I was able to begin cutting the tops off our Ornamental Grasses.
Trimming Ornamental Grasses It is necessary to trim ornamental grasses in late winter to remove old blades and seed heads before the next growing season. If you have ever struggled with trimming an ornamental grass with hand trimmers, here is a better way to trim ornamental grass with a chain saw or trimmer:
1. Separate your ornamental grass plant into several bunches.
2. Tie each bunch tightly with a strong piece of string.
3. Cut off the bunches below the string and as close to the ground as you can.
4. Use the string to pull the bunch of blades and seed heads to your disposal area.
5. Untie the string and repeat.
Although that was not on the DO LIST… it was something that needed to be done…
Do you all have DO LISTS?
It seems to help us focus…
Then there is the neat part about crossing THINGS off.
Quite a sense of accomplishment!
Ummmm sometimes, it is a self-imposed race to see who gets the most accomplished, which is not really fair, but the thought has entered my minds from time to time… ~~~~~~~~~
The other NEAT thing that happened this weekend was finding the first Duck Egg. Oh yes that is a biggie here.
My Sweetie in his ventures on the DO LIST located the first goose nest with ONE egg, so far…that was not touched…
Ummmmmmmm paradox would be a pair of DUCKS?
