Tortured Smoke

Here is a dual set of smoke bushes the were initially planted to grow tall and provide privacy.  But, the back neighbor later put in a row of bushes (hemlocks) that cover the privacy point, so I was trying to re-purpose and cut the bushes down.  Also second challenge, the area does not get enough sun for bushed to grow full and stay purple.  But they grow back each year, so they are staying.  Bush on left was almost lost this year, trying to grow it back. (ie: fence needs repair, I know...)
