I have to agree with you Lou, those problems are much easier to pull as seedlings than as mighty oaks with deep roots.

Nip the Problem in the Bud

“There is a time in life of every problem when it is

big enough to see, yet small enough to solve.”

Mike Leavitt, 20th Secretary of Health and Human Services   


As I see it . . . . . . .

Nip the problem in the bud


The best time to solve a problem . . . . is when it’s in the bud.


At the beginning of a problem the roots are shallow . . . . and easy to pull the root of the problem out and remove it.


The longer a problem is allowed to festers . . . . the deeper the roots become. If left unattended the roots of a problem can become aggressive . . . . They become so deep that they can become overwhelming . . . . and encompass many other aspects of your life . . . . and or your business.


When a problem pops up . . .  nip it in the bud . . . . and it will bring greater efficiency into your life.


A problem solved is a positive event . . . . a problem left to fester becomes a weight on your shoulders.  


When a problem comes into your life . . . . nip the problem in the bud . . . . and you will feel a weight being lifted off your shoulders.

Here's something funny...I often wondered if the saying nip it in the bud, or butt! Tee hee!

Good evening Bob,

Speaking of Oaks; is there a cure for Horned Galls on a Pin Oak?

Make yourself as great day.

Thank you so much for stopping by friends!

And Raymond E. Camp , generally twig galls are nothing to worry about, just take a pruning shear to it during the dormant season.
