    Wonderful! …and it is so much more fun to weed (or clean) someone else’s house!

    Charlene, it all looks great.  You and Larry did a wonderful thing for your BFF.

    Char, plenty of homes for sale around here…lol….you are the kind of neighbors you just dream of… “There is more happiness in given than in receiving” fits you to a T….  DH and a couple of friends are going tomorrow to clear/clean an older, almost blind friend from our congregation..it has to be at 6am due to our present heat….

    What wonderful neighbors you two are! You did such a great job for her and I know she appreciates it more than she can say. Maybe you would like to be my neighbors for a couple of weeks??? Great Job both of you.

    Great job, Charlene and Larry ~~~ And, I m sure your BFF appreciated all the hard work.

    Now, she will be able to sit and enjoy her yard and flowers as much as the rest of us enjoy ours, I m sure.  She ll smile when she remembers her BFF did it as a labor of love, for sure.

    Prayers for her tumors to disappear also …

    Thanks everyone….it is not how I would have done it for myself, but she is happy with this look.

    Mary….she told us that this makeover was the best medicine she could have….so you are right.

    Gayle….you are right about the dryer vent.  I told her that I was positive that is what killed her barberry bush.  We pulled the washtub as far away from it as we could, and I think it will be fine since she only washes a couple loads per week.

    I am surprised that the dryer vent would hurt the bush.  The place where I work is nest door to a laundry mat.  One of the former owners DH used to plant tomato plants under the big dryer vent and his tomato plants would get 8-10′ tall and produce like crazy.

    Bette….summer is fine….it was winter that I think did it in.  In the dead cold of winter, the hot air would blow on it and I am guessing that wasn’t good for it.  The part of the bush under the dryer was dead, and the part a bit farther south was not.  Maybe it wasn’t the dryer vent, but previously a lilac there died one winter.  Charlene

    Same with the bush at my son’s.  Where the dryer vent blows on it ( only about 2′ away) it is dead & brown.  The rest of the bush is fine.
