Guilt

My yard was so over grown. After living here for 8 years, this is the first Spring where I really feel pride and see the fruits of the weeding, mulching, transplanting! :D

I am feeling a little guilty as I pull up and throw away prefectly good plants just because they are in the wrong spot or over grown. I feel a little like a mass murders.

Thought? Am I over thinking this?

Don't feel guilty -- START A COMPOST PILE! Then you'll be serving the "Great Circle of Life" and giving them new purpose as compost, to grow things anew! :mrgreen:

Two thoughts. Instead of throwing them away, give them away. And, try cutting an overgrown shrub to the ground to start it all over again, works well for me.
