Dying Boxwood

Dying boxwood, weakened by disease. (Click picture for larger view) Posted by Picasa
"The greatest weakness of all is the great fear of appearing weak." ~ Bossuet
This group of boxwoods are on a side of the house not visible to the street. Last summer they were all green and healthy looking, home to beneficial spiders and lizards. I don't know when the changes took hold, but now this one is almost dead, its branches weak and splitting and the leaves a yellow-brown color. This boxwood is now so weakened that it would be easy to pull its roots from the ground. Whatever has destroyed this bush is now moving on to another down the line.

Timex Ironman watches suffice the innumerable needs of athletes, cyclists,
skiers, mountaineers, kayaks, etc. With time ticking by in the competitive fashion marketplace, Skagen watches will continue to
grow leaps and bounds over the competition while remaining true to their high standards of quality and luxury.
The bezels are inlaid with genuine 34 cut diamonds while subtle detailing works are
accented on the heart-shaped Krysterna crystal located above the date indicator.

Better certainly, than Starbucks or even the local coffee
shops, unless of course you are sitting in a splendid European caf.

As far as environmental waste, being that you can use
reusable filters much like the My K Cup and Solofill, discarding plastic k cups after every brew just isn't required. They also sell this within the market along with all the other sizes of K-cups.
