From Yardwork to Artwork: The Photinia Story Part Four or How I Love my Schmutz Haken
It’s that time of year when as you can see yardwork has become a necessity once again with our photinia continuing to shed its leaves on a daily basis.

A year later the story continues in Part Four today with a special shout out to my trusty Schmutz Haken…
…everyone should have one.
