The intense summer heat and lack of moisture has made quick work of the hydrangeas this season.  A bit of poetry inspired by their demise.....
Picture
I like dead flowers better, for honesty’s sake.  
Unlike their lively counterparts, 
they make no pretensions of glory in color,
sweetness in fragrance, 
nor luxury in texture.  

To them is the rarest and most precious pathos given;
to them does the nature of the heart incline.  
They are hidden away like precious treasures:
pressed between devout pages 
or secreted behind glass.  

They are spared the humiliation
of common display upon chiffoniers and dinettes.  
They are spared mutilation 
by gamesome schoolgirls
looking for answers to questions of love. 

I like dead flowers because they are the chalice of memory.  
“Drink from me and be reminded,” they cry. 
Cloistered away, they resurrect hope;
we take and retake that which we have already taken.  
I like dead flowers better.

This may seem like an obvious thing to do, but truly good service is hard to find in any industry, especially when it comes to lawn care. Some things you can do to provide excellent service are: thank your customers after you complete a job; arrive for your appointments on time; and do a thorough job when maintaining your customer's lawns. Thanks.
