A bush called Sweetums

I have been trimming this monstrosity of a bush for years now.

The previous owner, "Aunt June," didn't leave her house anymore, so she asked me to tidy her flower beds.

This beast shoots out sprouts daily. Or at least it feels like it.

Its overgrown shape reminds me of this Muppet
(who I have now learned is named Sweetums and has its own wiki page. Ah, the Internet knows no bounds).

Yesterday my dad came with his trusty chainsaw and rid me of the beast.

(No Muppets were harmed in the making of this blog.)

That flower bed has lots of spring-blooming peonies, so I'll fill in with some low-maintenance, summer-blooming flowers instead of a six-foot bush that blocks the sidewalk every six weeks.
