Yesterday evening, Travis cut down three more trees in the front yard, two pines and the crepe myrtle. It looks so different! Much better. The pine trees were planted way too close to the pecan and oak trees and they are less desirable, so out they came. The crepe myrtle was blocking the view out of the front door and it's not my favorite tree, so we cut it down, too.
Here's the before:
And the after:
Elizabeth was not too enthused. It was still warm outside and she couldn't really run freely since there were falling trees and all.
We are slowly cleaning out this mess that we bought! Without the chain link fence and grapevine in front, and now the trees are gone, it's looking less compoundy and much more like a well groomed property.
