Farewell ole' tree. You were pretty to look at but your positive attributes ended there. We won't miss your sun-blocking, leaf-dropping ways.
|AFTER - But before grass was filled.|
I started to have a bit of an "Oh crap, what did we do?" moment. But once the grass was filled in........
|AFTER AND COMPLETE|
It looks like the tree was never supposed to be there.
UPDATE: Okay, so I kind of miss the tree. Not the tree itself, but the privacy it provided in front of our giant window. I realized how much I missed this when I ran downstairs semi-clothed and noticed that I was on display for the entire street. I took the tree for granted. I know it wasn't a cloak of invisibility but I like to think that it shielded me slightly from the neighbors when I was running free. I guess I better think twice before doing that again. That aside, I'm pretty happy with the overall look of the yard sans the tree.
