The end of an era

By ginny - Posted on 30 April 2007

As of today, an icon of our backyard is gone. The last remnant (and it was a big one) of the walnut tree that stood in the middle of the backyard has been hauled off.

It was a beast to take down so that we could level. The hole it created almost sucked Kristian and the bobcat down it. Even when it was out of the hole, it was no small feat to move it so we could trench for irrigation and lay lawn. For a while it just sat in one corner of the yard. I can't say I won't miss it. It was an interesting idea to turn it into a seat, but I wouldn't have sat on it (too many places for spiders to hide). So in the end, it's gone.
