Nope, our tree does NOT look like that yet...I am merely showing this picture so that you can look at the left side of the picture, at the round bushes in the background.(This was the only picture I could find of the bushes...I suppose that may reflect my distaste for them)...I do however LOVE the beautiful dogwood, that will probrably not bloom until the end of next month.
Because as of last Saturday those ugly bushes are no more. Ricky removed the 6 ugly bushes to reveal a pretty little yard. You can see the flower bed we worked on last year, and hopefully soon we will add a pretty white picket fence with some wild flowers along the side walk.
A great change from the prior ugly evergreens, laurels and the token Oregon grape...there were 6 bushes total.
This is what happens when the weather turns beutiful and we find ouselves with this sudden itch to spend every weaking moment in the sunshine. It only lasted for two days however, as of Monday we were back to being cold with snow. But at least the bushes were gone.
Rick also made us a sweet little chicken coop that we painted tonight. Oscar loved painting Poppy, can you tell who ended up the most painted?
No need to fear...I have been doing my share of the work, pruning the fruit trees (two apple and one crab apple). Here is a couple of bundles of the water shoots. Now we just need to find a use of the abundance. If I were a bit more crafty i might find a use...so if any of you bloggers in our area want some tiny little branches for some creative outlet, let me know!
So although I have been a bit absent, we have been busy. I think that is how it goes some times. We find ourselves doing all sorts of blog worthy stuff, but no time or desire to post it.
Spring has sprung and we are happy to be enjoying it.
