We somehow went the whole summer without working on our backyard.
But it has been a crazy summer. We tossed around the idea of putting in a pool, but then we thought we might move, and then we decided that next year would be the pool, and finally I told Andy that I wanted to get out there and try to tackle the jungle.
We used to have a nice backyard. But a wacky spring made everything grow like crazy and our backyard turned into a jungle. It needs a complete overhaul.
But to start with, I wanted a few trees removed.
And that says a lot. I usually fight for every tree. But these trees are bad news.
There are three of them. They are half dead. Ugly. But worst of all, they have huge thorns all over them, and the limbs keep breaking off.
So I asked Andy and the boys to cut them down, because behind them are pine trees that aren’t growing because they don’t get any light.
Because these guys
Went back to school
And I miss them already
But I have tons of laundry
And a house that has to be put back together after a summer of uncertainty
Time to organize, clean, and purge!
