Having been away for a couple of weeks, there was no stopping Chris this weekend! He strimmed all the meadow grass, raked it up and lugged it to the compost heap, I weeded and edged around the tree bases and then it was time for the big change! Out with a really badly placed apple tree (now grafted and growing away happily on its neighbour) and out with a fruitless, miserable and diseased cherry tree!
Both were obscuring our fabulous views across the valley and both will now help keep us warm over winter! We're now awaiting the arrival of Chris avec stump grinder. In the meantime, a bird house sits on the cherry stump and a mini theatre with players on the apple stump!
Here we have before and after and our restored view!!
