So, Saturday I fully intended to get some serious sewing done,
but.....the weather was PERFECT for being outside!!
So, Friday night, with a little help, the shrubbery forest known as landscaping,
finally (after 5+ years!!!) got yanked out!
I forgot to take a "before" picture as I usually forget to do, but just picture bushes that typically aren't used in landscaping but rather hedges hiding just about all the window and half the door...I know...it wasn't good!! I had a landscaping forest on my hands.
Whoever planted the buggers before I moved in didn't read the tags well AT ALL...and no matter how much pruning and love I gave them, they just weren't right.
So, as shown here, they're all goners!! Yup!!
Now I have one smoke bush (which potentially could get out of hand) and four hydrangeas.
Nest step, 1,000 more bags of mulch...well, maybe 20 :)
This is taken from the other side...since I already had to go to the landfill to rid myself of a forest, I pruned my 3 remaining shrubs...and maybe a little of my thumb...
Now, I can sew ;)
