Now You See It...Now You Don't

This was our tree and landscaping this morning before the tree guys came. See how lovely it looks next to our raised bed? See how nice the shade is?

This is our backyard in the same spot this evening. No shade, poor hostas are going to bake, and the yard looks naked. I am glad I wasn't here, it would have made me cry. I have some cleaning up to do, and we definitely need to get another tree in there fast for some shade...

Sorry, poor tree, but I couldn't do anything to help you. At least now you are not suffering...

Sad when they have to go.

At least you had a very good reason unlike a person a couple towns over from me. They clear cut their yard, no permits, and it looks awful (they are now facing charges and a $100,000 fine- yeah right!)

Awww poor tree. Get a Japanese Maple! :) (OK I have an obsession with them but I know they don't grow tall to be useful. :) )

I love Japanease maples and you can actually get them in the non-dwarf variety but I think we want something that is evergreen....we'll see what our options end up being.

I am so sorry you lost the tree, but I know you will pick something beautiful to take it's place. We just planted some cedars along our fence, that way when we are enjoying the backyard we will enjoy the aroma of those cedars!

Japanese maples do look glorious three of the four seasons, but an evergreen would be appealing, too.

Someday when I have a yard--*starts to daydream*--I want fruit trees in it.
