Yesterday morning the weather forecast was for hot and sticky by the end of the day but early on it was quite cool and comfortable. I'd already done some pruning over the weekend but I pulled out my shears and did a bit more. The tulip tree is now looking a bit more tree-like and the honeysuckle has been tamed again. I also dead-headed the monstrous lavender bush on the side of the house. There really isn't anything in the photo for scale but this guy is about 4 feet across!
