The big tree is gone!

Yesterday the men worked all day to clear the tree. Sadly, we were asked to remove it, as one of the neighbours felt hindered by the tree. To be truthful, I can imagine they hated the tree as practically the half of the branches was hanging over the fence giving them lots of shade in their garden. So now they can enjoy the sun.
I however, can’t get used to the bare spot. I liked the privacy the tree gave. So coming autumn, around October, we will have to plant something that will provide us privacy and lots of green to look at. If you have any suggestions for a tree that doesn’t branch out, and remains green throughout the year, I would love to hear about it. We definitely need more green in that corner.



As you can see it took the men a lot of effort to clear the tree, but our friend had lots of fun with all the tools. However, one of the tools broke, we had to get a new one.
I played housewife and cleaned the inside of the house. After all our work we had a BBQ and I found some time to do some quilting.

What if you plant the new tree away from the fence. As it branches out it will still be in your yard not over the neighbors yard
