The Chain Saw was Here

18 Apr

My dad brought his chain saw out over the weekend.  We cut down my apple tree that has been laying down for the last few years.  Unbelievably, it was starting to get blossoms.  I will miss it.

This is all that is left of my peach tree.  You might remember that it split in a storm last year.

Finally, he cut down the big walking stick tree.  It was mostly dead, and it was under the pine trees right by my garden.  I’ll never figure out the planting logic of the people who lived here before me.

I did ask my dad if he was going to carve something out of the stump, but he told me I shouldn’t hold my breathe while I was waiting for him to get it done.

I also took out the fence I put up last year to keep goats out of the garden, so Sky got to explore over there.

It gives him a lot more room to run and play.

Hopefully, I can get some good weather to finish cleaning it up, so I can get my garden planted.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items at the top of my side bar.

    I have often wondered the same thing about the previous owners here. Things do get that vacant look for a while when you have to cut stuff down. It took me a couple years to get used to where the pear tree stood.
    Sky is really growing into a handsome dog!

    Looks like a successful clean up. I bet your gorgeous puppy is loving the space! 🙂

    I can see the need for removing the trees. Whenever we’ve had to have a tree taken out on our property, it has always been a sad thing for me – a beautiful tree broken during a severe windstorm. The most recent one was a gorgeous Autumn Blaze Maple, which came down at the height of its color. I’d love to see your dad carve something out of that stump. I hope he’ll be able to do it. I know you’ll miss your apples and peaches. 😦
