Front Yard Makeover!

We were busy this Memorial Day weekend.  I finally decided to go for it and trim the huge pine tree in our front yard.  I have been contemplating this for a few years now, and have been hesitating because I didn’t want it to look like a hack job, or make the branches look lopsided.    But this spring has made our pine tree branches grow out longer, and we have to duck under the branches to mow our front yard.  The branches are also extending into the street and in our driveway…. so, we got out the bow saw and started mapping out which branches to cut.

After trimming…



We have a front yard now!  We can walk around easily without fear of getting our eyes poked out by branches!  It turned out better than I thought it would.  We took extra care to make the branches look symmetrical all around, and I’m relieved that it turned out so well!  Aaron has been wanting to chop down the tree!  But now we both like it :)  We hung a wind chime on a branch, and I think we will hang a few bird houses in the tree as well!  I love it!


I cleaned out my flower bed also this weekend.  I removed all of the old mulch and replaced my old wooden baskets with different flower pots.  Clean and pretty!



Aaron grilled burgers.  I oven roasted some veggies and made a fresh loaf of bread for Memorial Day dinner.  It was a great weekend!
