Oh my gosh, the neighbors planted Red Tips years ago along our property line. I guess they wanted privacy? Well, they have since moved and now the Red Tips are all dying! They keep dropping leaves in my flower beds. The new owner is so nice and he said he would have them cut down. They were beautiful at one time. And I just might put that Honda grass catcher in the back of my Rave4 and use it for bringing bags of groceries inside...Great idea!
