Growth. Is it ever more evident than when spring approaches and everything just starts to get out of control? Living in Australia goes against my nature as the growth gets cut back. The season is long and there is so much sun that things get out of control. These trees were twice the size Sunday morning and now they are all trimmed back. In a few short days there will be branches sprouting out all over and another pile of discarded growth will need to be dealt with sooner than I can imagine.
