Every growing thing that my late MIL planted on this farm is of monstrous size. The hibiscus bush is well over 9 ft. tall and 6 ft. wide and has created volunteers everywhere. The gardenia bush that she planted up at the cemetary is at least 6 ft. tall. Then there's the forsythia (yellow bell) bush in the backyard. It takes up an entire corner of the yard, at least 6 ft. x 6 ft. Of these plants, DH has an intense dislike of the forsythia bush, I dunno why. Every fall DH gets out there with a weedeater, an ax and a shovel and attempts to kill the thing. This past fall I thought he'd give himself a heart attack with his attempts at planticide. I was just out in that part of the yard. Ummm honey, your yellow bell is blooming.
