Or, preparing for the well
We can't just, you know, have them dig a well in the front yard. Nope, we need to take down one tree and a few branches from two more trees, move one large perennial bed, and then move a whole bunch of stuff around in the basement.
Tom got to have "fun" yesterday with the chainsaw, and I with the chipper/shredder (think Fargo without the blood).
And no, we don't have "chainsaw art" where the tree was, though it certainly does appear that way in this picture!
1:00 p.m. Update:
Hey! I recognize that gray muck! That's our clay soil! This process is rather fascinating. From what I can understand, it's dug hydraulically. Fascinating. (And yes, our house does have a tin roof. It's the one thing we'll never have to replace!)
5:00 Update: A beautiful sight.
