After his 4-day whirlwind business trip Austin took the afternoon off. He borrowed a chainsaw and took down the flowering crab tree in our back yard. I don't think it was going to be as much of a nuisance as the one we took out at the Denver house, and it did provide some privacy from the house across the alley. However, I would REALLY like to have a garden next year and about the only place to put it will be along the alley. The tree would have shaded that area a little too much. We're planning to have someone come in and scrape out the old rock/gravel area that was used by a previous owner to park a camper and have black dirt brought in to replace it so it can be seeded. So if the tree was going to come out it had to come out now.
