It’s Spring: Time to Deadhead Your Content

Our Japanese maple, post de-twigging. I adore the Japanese Maple behind our house. Each fall it drops every leaf and winters as a crazy straw look alike. As it begins to bud each spring, we deadhead it by flicking off its dead twigs. I’m not much of a gardener, but even I know that breaking…
