We decided to have some work done to add a few small “hardscape” areas around our cottage and also extend the backyard grass. As part of this improvement project, we’re first having a few trees in the backyard trimmed or cut down. One huge branch on a gigantic oak tree had to go because it was precariously leaning toward our neighbor’s house. There were also some dead/broken trees in the yard that needed to be thinned out and immense poison ivy vines removed.
The trimmers came mid-day and got right to work. Ah, the excitement of it all! It was fun to watch this fellow climb and cut with the chainsaw. I took a very short break from my procedure editing job to witness the demise of the big branch.
The view from hubby’s upstairs office was perfect to see the action. Look out below!!!
We could tell that this guy knew exactly what he was doing because he made it look easy. But I wouldn’t go up there and do that kind of work for a zillion dollars! These men work hard for the money!
The tree crew did a great job today. There’s still a little cleanup and hauling left to do, but they are going to come back and finish those tasks on Friday.
I hope that you noticed a little sprucing up here on my blog too! I added new custom blog background and header a few days ago. I created them from a photo I took of an antique quilt displayed at a local festival. I love the bright and cheery colors of the vintage fabrics used, particularly the bubblegum pink! The pattern is called wedding ring. If it could talk, I wonder what stories the old quilt could tell.
