Now, doesn't THIS look better. Work with me, pretend like you knew what it looked like before I attacked with the clippers.
I also chopped a big ole branch off the front of our front tree, but shhhhhh....don't tell Ernie. I'm Mr. Miagi (sound out my sounded out spelling...Karate Kid, you remember), and I'm determined to train my tree. I told my neighbor, "Train up a tree in the way in should go and it will not depart from it." Whoops, no, that's children. But, I figure if it works for kids it's GOT TO work for a tree. After all, my tree's never told me NO!
For those of you worried that I've just told Ernie myself by posting this. Rest your head, I'm 99.99999% the only posts he ever sees from my blog are the ones that I insist that he see because I'm 1) amused or 2) proud. Other than that, I'm pretty sure, he's oblivious.
Have fun choppin' on your landscape!
