Sylvia was visiting us for a week--checking out the new kitchen, seeing dear old friends, visiting her #2 son. Though she was busy with errands for friends or dinner with other friends, she still found time to do a bit of our heavy gardening. I came home from work to find this:
So, she hacked away at it. Will helped too, but I think that was more with the clean up of the debris. And you can see that there is a fair amount of it.
The trees have been sufficiently trimmed back and in the summer, we will enjoy the new growth--hopefully of the tree itself but of the grass that we will now plant to help with the mud pit.
