Pruning Bush

Here's what our fearless leader was up to today (as reported by Reuters): President Bush with pruning shears in Florida - Reuters

In a successful stab at a photo op, President Bush traveled to Florida, where he took time out from fundraising and speaking about the importance of protecting wetlands to help his brother Jeb remove invasive plants from the Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve. I did some digging, and it appears Bush may have been attacking melaleuca (Melaleuca quinquenervia) plants, among other invasives found at the reserve.
