Master Gardener


When Rita’s Wax Myrtle tree leafed out this spring

She immediately set about expertly pruning it

As she does every spring.

She removed every twig of new growth

From the main branches of the tree.

It was as if she knew precisely how to trim a tree!


As She always does, she settled on her favorite branch

For a work break

Only when she finished trimming the tree

And was agreeable to come down for the ride home!
