Scott mentioned recently that he would also like to cut back the very overgrown pine bushes (now at least eight feet high) from the left of the driveway as you look at the house. I agreed it would be nice and that was about the extent of the conversation. As we drove up to the house at 6:30 on Saturday evening from the gallery Scott slowed the car to show me his days handiwork. He had cut back the bushes to about twenty feet from the street and it looks amazing. It really opened up the driveway and sight lines to the house from the west.

There be mail boxes in that there ivy! And there was a whole pile of branches to be cut down, which we accomplished today to the tune of six yard waste bags. And of course there is more to do...one more large bush needs to come down and then there is landscape planning including lots and lots of mulch. Our neighbor to the west has a lovely, manicured yard and I'll be talking to her about how to coordinate planting in the shared area behind our mailboxes.
