Clearin' Brush!

This past weekend we did the Texas thing, and "cleared brush!" The previous owners of our house had not taken care of the yard for ten years or so, so we had some major clearing out to do. We had standing dead trees and everything was on the verge of being choked out. We worked hard to clear the undergrowth and trim limbs and make piles, which we chipped on Saturday. It was hard work, but the results were worth it.

Note the tree near the center of the first set of pictures, and the fence and background trees in the second set for reference.

Laz, Moses and Grace were not involved with this project, and I am happy to report that while Kevin and I are scratched and bruised, we have all our digits.
