I would wish that at the end of my life when I stand before God I can say I used up all the talent you gave me.

THE SAGA OF MY YUCCA TREES
These are my yucca trees. The top picture is what they looked like when I bought the house. I took picture in January 2011. The trees looked to be falling over and then I realized the prior owner had them wired to stop them falling over. They were little plants about a foot high near the ground with 8-12 foot trees growing out of the center. I contacted a nursery and was told you are supposed to trim back the bud stalk after they bloom but these were left too long so needed to be cut back completely. I did that and 2 years later they just exploded. The plant itself went from about 1-2 foot to about 7 foot tall and 4-5 feet wide and I have around 10 trees. This is the bottom picture and I HATE those buses. They are gangley, as sharp as razor blades, attract wasps and are ugly. I set off to trim them and that was a mistake. See part 2 of the Yucca saga.
