i don't have a house......

......in the woods anymore!!! on wednesday i had 11 --- yes, eleven -- trees removed from my front yard!!!! AND i kept 4 (3 for the front & had 1 put in the back)!!!!! the trees were WAY overgrown, lots of dead in the 22+ year old pines, crowded, the roots were ALL OVER the yard, it was hard to mow, grass wouldn't grow, weeds were crazy & it just plain looked crappy! so, i had the trees removed, the ground leveled, new topsoil put in and all new sod put down. we saved 2 large oaks & 2 babies so i didn't have to buy any new trees!!! i L.O.V.E. it!!!!!!!!! here are all the before & after pictures ====> this is what it looked like at 7:30 am:
this is what it looked like at noon:
this is what it looked like at 3pm:
and the "almost finished" yard:
they ran out of grass & will have to bring some more on monday. it's beautiful & i'm very happy. very poor right now, but very happy!!!! who knew there was a HOUSE behind all those trees?!?!?!!! have a terrific weekend!!!!! i've gotta think of another project!!!! actually, i have one. gotta get up the nerve to ask a man with a circular saw to tackle it myself. i think i can do it!!!!!! stay tuned!!!!!

LOVE it, looks so pretty! Now you have lots of light coming in the stamp room window so you can stamp clearly with the Yukon.
