There is an on-going debate in our house- is this tree dead or alive? Will it ever come back to life?
Against the sound advice of our great neighbor Judy~ last fall, Mark 'overzealously' pruned (that's what he called it- truthfully he whacked the living daylights out of the poor thing!) the wild-looking Japanese Maple in front of our house. I'm not thinking it's coming back~ Mark and his Dad say "Oh you of little faith- it's still alive!" They have this habit of telling me things just to 'shut' me up- LOL! What do you think???? Stay tuned- we shall see--- (I have a feeling you'll be seeing the same picture all summer- the thing is dead I'm telling you:)
