Shocking My Lantana
Not only that but my arms look like I've been in a cat fight. when lantana dies back it is sharp and crisp. Today was the perfect day to work on cutting all the dead foliage back. A gentle breeze, the sun wasn't hot, and it wasn't cold. My neighbor moved so he wasn't talking over my shoulder telling me I'm shocking my lantana. The new neighbor doesn't give a damn if I shock my lantana. He loves our weather though because he is from cold country. He doesn't get out to enjoy it just drives his sporty little car into the garage, closes the door and we don't see him again until he comes home from work the next day. After trimming all the front of the house I could see something has taken up residence under my foundation. Big round hole. I put some gohper poisen in the hole then I went to Wal*Mart to buy some moth balls and poured some of those down there. Oh yes I realize the hole is a little large for a moth or even a bunch of moths. Thought maybe the resident wouldn't like the odor. Next I'll have to get some dirt or sand to fill the hole. I live in town so why am I always fighting some kind of varmint? I got the very large garbage can filled and then discover the rubber is half off one of the wheels and I can't push it very easily. Make a call to the city for a new one. They don't deliver them until Thursday. What do you want to bet the driver will be looking at the can and not see the little wheel's problem and I will have to call again? I still have a lot of trimming to do. Oh well it will probably be winter again and I won't be interested in yard work.
