Well, it's Saturday and we had some help for the day and decided to take advantage of him. Our youngest son Chris was willing to use his 4 wheel drive truck to pull out some old shrubs for us. I think we planted these privets about 15 years ago and they've become too much of a pruning issue for me to take care of anymore. We pulled out 5 or 6 along the driveway under the maple trees. Once they are gone we're going to prune the maples and it should look much better.
Mr. Bird Nest, as always, helps with any project we do. He had the chainsaw out before Chris ever got down the driveway and cut up all the privets and tree.
Chris and Elizabeth's son Carson was set up on the driveway on a lawn chair with an M & M machine on a stool beside him. I'm so sorry I didn't get a picture because it was priceless.
One final privet and they are gone. One of our neighbors is going to help Mr. Bird Nest haul them away.
This Japanese maple was a victim of our drought this summer so it got pulled out too.
Carson and I watched from the safety of the front porch.
Chris' reward a ice cold Coke. Just what his mother would choose.
