Timber!

Spent President's Day weekend doing mostly house stuff...working on fencing, cleaning up the backyard, chores, laundry, and cutting down dead trees!

When we moved in last spring, we had 4 dead poplar trees that needed taking down. Finally got the courage up yesterday to rent a big chainsaw and cut them down!

These are now the 4 stumps that were the 4 dead poplars. We still have a lot of work cut out for us with the chopping, stacking etc., but getting them down was the main thing! (that, and not hitting a power line, fence, or the house when they fell...)

That's the river, where the trees are, and the field across from it. See the little creamy colored specs in the field? Sheep. About a thousand of them! Just noticed them for the first time this weekend, I wonder where they normally are?

Oh my goodness! That is quite a chore you took on. I've only cut down 'young' trees of less than a few years of age and no more than 6 inches in diameter. Usually they come down during storms and we just have to clear them.

Sheep Ho! Wow, I don't think I've ever seen so many sheep.
Beautiful four corners blue sky.

No wonder you where tired! That looks like a lot of hard labor! Love that you have sheep you can see from your house! Love sheep! They are so darn cute.

Hmmm...do you think your neighbors would notice if a sheep came home naked one day? ;-)
