Taking Advantage of a Cool, Drizzly Morning

Now that the summer flowers are holding their own for a little while, it's time to get down to some serious garden work.  It seems there is no end to the pruning and fluffing, just following behind the latest things to bloom in various parts of the garden.

Carmen has begun the summer trek from one end of the creek to the other, pulling weeds, moving some babies that have self-sown themselves over the past few months, getting that close up look for diseases, bugs, and such.
In a heavily shaded part of the garden, there is a group of Gumpo pink azaleas (also known as "they're only two feet tall and the flowers are hidden under the leaves, so what's the point?").  In any case, they've spread sideways to the point of obscuring the path ("and the flowers are still hidden under the leaves so what's the point?").  In any case, Chuck gets to trim them back pretty seriously and move the landscape lighting that is now in the middle of the do I really feel about Gumpo azaleas?
