I have a new toy! Never, ever have I used a hedge trimmer. I don't even have a hedge, but I have some plant with red leaves that just grows out of control. Many times I have cut it back with hand trimmers, but it grows so quickly. Finally, I gave up and bought this little jewel. Yep, I'm pretty much a master at it now. I'll probably turn everything in the yard into a topiary now!!! My other new purchase is a t-shirt. Check it out!It says " I support the pitbull with lipstick".
