A shrub is distinguished from a tree by its multiple stems and shorter height, usually under 6 m (20 ft) tall. Plants of many species may grow either into shrubs or trees, depending on their growing conditions. Small, low shrubs, generally less than 2 m (6.6 ft) tall, such as lavender, periwinkle and most small garden varieties of roses, are often termed subshrubs or bushes.
An area of cultivated shrubs in a park or garden is known as a shrubbery. When clipped as topiary, suitable species or varieties of shrubs develop dense foliage and many small leafy branches growing close together. Many shrubs respond well to renewal pruning, in which hard cutting back to a ‘stool’ results in long new stems known as “canes”. Other shrubs respond better to selective pruning to reveal their structure and character.

Is this a hostage situation?
Puzzlin’ over the possible ransom note.
Is there anyone left to care?
And where would such a demand be sent?
The Ghirardi family has been gone a long time.
And what’s this a-wrappin around down here? Odd.
Wearing a wooden shoe and not even Dutch.
A clunky thing – fits like a snug boot.
Maybe it’s one of those parking boots for cars? From being parked in one place too long?
Oh dear. What was the time limit for that spot?
Seems like an eternity went past sittin’ there.
But now, here, is just a puzzlement.
