This little buxus is not one I actually sheared, but I did spend the majority of the morning trimming back shrubs just like it! And it felt so satisfying. So so satisfying.
This seems weird to you. I get that. But if I put a pair of shears in your hands and set you in front of a row of boxwood, you'd totally get the pruning urge, too. Look out, little shrubs. Suzanne is on the loose.
And yes, I use latin when I speak of shrubs and trees. I spent a whole semester memorizing 200+ latin names for shrubs and trees. You're darn right I'm going to put that to use, if for no other reason than to sound smart.
