Forsythia

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

The one thing that was plentiful when I bought my new very old house in the Berkshires eight years ago was the forsythia. I have three areas where it grows, grows and grows some more. I like a natural look but it does require attention lest it envelope the entire yard and home. Keeping the height in check it a big job and needs regular attention. And so I cut it back often. Today was a day to attend to it again and I am exhausted. Gardens require attention, like animals and people. I do my beat.

When you think about real estate, it is time to focus. I have helped people for close to thirty years in all areas, and made the process not only simple but enjoyable. Why should you go it alone or settle for less? Call me and find a partner to help, direct and get you where you want to be.

Sheila,

It is one the many plants that we do not see here in Southern California, and one of the many reasons, I love going to different parts of the country.  I have been doing summer clean up in our garden, and it is exhausting work.  A

Working in the garden is good for the soul.  I always feel better after I've been outside doing something like that.

Hi Sheila- gardens need so much care but so worth it. What I liked the least was pulling weeds.

I have Flying Saucers Morning Glory in my yard.  They are beautiful in blossom, but the late rains we received this year, and the end to the drought have made it take off and become a tad overgrown in spots.  Still, I hate trimming it back because it is currently so lovely.

Morning Sheila.

Hmm, I tried twice clicking on the like icon, each time I got an error message.  Interesting, in any respect, I hope your weekend goes well

I've always loved forsythia, Sheila. As for the tiring work gardening entails, I'll admit I'm exhausted from supervising my gardeners yesterday who was putting my yard into shape!

Hi there Sheila. I'm a big fan of the exhaustion one gets from a day spent gardening. Somehow, it's satisfying to the soul.  Love the cheery look of forsythia...although we don't currently have any growing in our yard.
