When he starts acting like a lumberjack!
H got a new toy the other day, an electric chainsaw, and his excitement lead to this! I didn't even get a chance to grab a "before", before H and my brother R started going chainsaw happy!
It was a evergreen tree that had been pruned to death by the previous owners (like these, but into a ball shape, ooh la la!). I wasn't a fan because it closed in our side yard and served no real aesthetic purpose (aka no pretty flowers or foliage), so I sure wasn't crying when H decided to take it down!
Ahhh, so much bigger feeling! The grass seed has been sown (a few months ago, shhh ) so the dirt patch is now green. Don't worry, we have plans afoot for this side of our house, something that is much more "us"!
