Fine, St. Patrick drove all the snakes out of Ireland. Now could he just drive all the pruners, loppers, and saws out of THIS country? Because it seems that once again, bored husbands fortified by gallons of green beer are celebrating the day by mutilating crepe myrtles. And the trees don’t exactly feel lucky.
But Cara Catrett does! For sending Grumpy this sickening but totally excellent example of man’s inhumanity to plants, she becomes winner #6 in Crepe Murder 2013. Her prize: a dwarf ‘Early Bird’ crepe myrtle that never needs pruning from our Southern Living Plant Collection.
Are You Covered?
Cara discovered this execrable crime committed outside an insurance company. And this brings up an important question. What if this happened at YOUR house? Would you be covered for damages and repair? Many people are shocked to discover that regular homeowner’s insurance does not cover crepe murder. Ask your agent to review your policy today!
Winner #7 This Thursday!
Check out the Grumpy Gardener this Thursday to witness further testimony to people’s stupidity as we count down the Dirty Dozen of Crepe Murder 2013. It’ll make you wail like a banshee.
