The weather sure changed quickly here in Wisconsin. We are down to freezing at night and our days are barely reaching 50 degrees. The smell of WINTER is in the air.
It's that time of year when we have to start hunkering down and take care of things before the winter snows come. There were three crooked leaning trees in the backyard. They are growing with the roots potentially impeding upon the cement slab. Steve wanted to get them out of there in case the trees fall over during the winter. He could tell that they were rotting from the inside out.
They're just weed trees, some type of wild box elder that he wants to get rid of. He would like to keep the cement slab intact so he could do a future building project on it. It had originally been a chicken coop long ago. So he is thinking about building a cute Little Red Barn back there for storing garden equipment, lawn mower, snow blower etc. He talked with our neighbor who said he would gladly come and get the firewood. He will save for next winter, because it's still too green to burn this year, of course.
now I am all weepy---
