We had a Monsoon storm that took out an old dead tree in the side yard a few weeks back and I finally had a chance to take care of it.
I am becoming near expert level at “tree removal” and not much makes me feel more powerful and capable than welding a chainsaw! I am woman, hear me roar!!!!
In my excitement with removing said small dead tree in the first photo I decided to take out this bigger one that, as you can see, always hindered my view to the west from the porch. And it was just all dead and ugly. So although I didn’t get it ALL removed and there is still about 2-3 feet of stump, I was exhausted by the time I finished all this. Plus I can’t stop a tree project until I get all the limbs hauled off (to the side yard) and the ground raked so it all looks nice again, lol! But just the above before and after photo was totally enough for me to know this was absolutely the best decision!
Description on the photo says it all! Yay for mountain views! One of the biggest pros to living in the country!
Even though it is just August I LOVE fall! So even when it is still hot outside, the kids going back to school always gets me in “Fall” mode and indoor Fall home decor is possibly my all time favorite! So I made this center piece for our dining room table! And I am totally in love with it!
One day coming home from work and I was still on the porch and just walked across to look off to the west and see this gorgeous sunset! I love so many things about living out here and the glorious sunsets definitely make the top of the list!
