The culling of my books, the pruning of my trees. Culling & pruning.

Is that a "poetic" line?

So, this year's freeze killed off my 7 flowering trees besides the top parts of the bushes. The bushes have sprouted back from the bottom, but all of it together means cropping off all of the dead tangled branches. And the tree trunks.

Anyway, the Community's department refused a mountain of my branches refuse because it was into my property line. So I've dragged the remains out into the the City's precious domain. And I don't know or think whether it's efficacious for trees/plants ever again, except for little/temporary things.

*** And when I was young/student, I accumulated books. Yes, didn't read some but possessed for importance. In later decades have culled and culled, donating many to the library. So what's left is Precious. Now in digital living don't need them to exist.


*** Culling and pruning.
