One of the things on our "to do list" for this house... is to take care of the trees.
We have 9 trees that need to come down... and another 4 that are already down.
Apparently, there have been several bad storms in the past 5yrs... and it did a lot of damage to the trees on this plot of land.
And then there was a "blight" that hit the row of pines behind our house... and... well... there you have it.
We had hoped to tackle the work this summer; but it just didn't happen...
The neat part is.... nature seems to have rewarded us for not taking care of things right away; with this explosion of asters and goldenrod. We have them everywhere! And it is just stunning.
