A busy day today. The Limber Tree Service came and took out two pines that were leaning over the house, and cut back a whack of the weeping willow*. (There’s lots more to do, but it’s a good start; the rest will wait till the fall sometime.) We ended up with an ginormous pile of chips (look at them flying out the end of the chipper! whee!), so our yardwork regimen for some time to come will involve moving wheelbarrows of them to mulch garden beds and paths.
What with the new vistas and the mulch, everything will look MUCH different.
*And what did we do while they worked their butts off? We rode our bikes from one end of the island to the other and had lunch on the patio at Silva Bay.
