So we got the tree men in, with their cherry picker and chainsaws. They were just starting to chop at 9 am, and just driving away when I got home at 3:30. Money well spent.
Now my vege patch gets to see some sunshine. I'm a wee bit concerned it's still too shady, but I think a wee bit of cover from the midday Auckland summer sunshine probably isn't such a bad thing. Along the back, those trees are 3 peaches and a plum. I'm pretty sure!
There's a wee garden which runs along he side of the house, opposite and paralell to this garage wall. With the tree gone, not only can we get into the garage, this wee stratch of dirt gets all day sun!
The most dramatic change really was out the front, still so so much work to do, but at least now we can see where we are headed! Taking out these trees has also dramatically increased light level in the lounge.
Dave and Louise (Michael's Dad and his Partner) are staying with us for 5 days at the moment. You won't beleive the series of phots I'll show you in a couple of days time when we've finished the working bee we're in the middle of!
