A couple of lilacs in the front yard have grown somewhat out of control, and they were getting in my way when I mowed the lawn. So I broke out my loppers and chopped off some of the low-lying branches.
Compare the shrub in the foreground in the photo above to the photo below.
And the next two photos are a before-and-after of the other lilac.
After I took the photos in this post, I broke out the saw and took out even more branches. Now it will be a lot easier to negotiate this area the next time I mow...which will probably be in a couple of days.
Of course, now I have a pile of branches that I have to get rid of. I guess it's a good thing that yard waste collection is next week!
