We're still having to wait for the grass to dry out enough between rainfall to keep our grass down, but, I agree the noise of machinery can ruin a quiet Sunday (or any) afternoon can't it?

Like you, I find that Branch Eater just horrendous! A few weeks ago the little hill across the street from me was cleared of just about everything...It took a couple of days and that machine just about drobe me bonkers! And the incline looks quite! But it all was a terrible fire hazard!

I must say that tree looks like it was trimmed very very well, and with some artistry---which is always helpful, isn't it....!

OOOer look at that blue sky - it is so gorgeous - and the trees will be too, once they have aged another wee bit, I know the leaves are a nuisance at the end of the season - but think of the amazing and fantastic show of colours at that time. We do live in a beautiful World don't we. Kate x.

Sablonneuse: I managed to get our son to do it as I didn't want Karen to waste precious time on the lawn. Now it's short again MTL can do it- hopefully. The garden is already looking much neater and cared for.

Naomi: I'm glad you approve of the way he has done it. I don't know enouugh about it. I can't wait for the leaves to burst forth. They look beautiful when they are young and fresh.

Kate: yes it is a thing of beauty which I am grateful for most of the time.

I'm sure it will be much prettier when it leafs out. We have all that noise going on around here too.

I have a giant elm in the back that needs pruning. But the man wants $1,300 to do a small tree in the front and the elm.

I don't have it right now!
So every so often I go out there and whack off what I can standing on the ground!

Judy: all I can hear at this moment is bird song. Mind you it is 5.26am.

Kanani: that's an awful lot of money. Just don't stand under it when there is a gale.
