Goodbye, Bougainvillea
August 29th, 2010 by Jessica

This morning, the front yard by our front door looked like this:

This Morning

This Morning

About 2 hours of labor, 10 garbage bags and several bottles of water later, it now looks like this:

This Afternoon

This Afternoon

No more wasp nests.  No more little pink leaves blowing all over the yard.  No more “Honey, can you please trim the bougainvillea?” six times per year.  No more piles of debris for scorpions to hide in.  No more littering the neighbor’s yard over the fence. No more “Aww crap, the bougainvillea fell over again and is blocking the doorway.”

Goodbye, bougainvillea!  Many thanks to Andrew who did about 90% of the work while I stood there and held the garbage bags, spraying wasp killer randomly at angry dive bombing wasps.
