not too long ago, when my mom and dad were over, we were all doing yard work in the front yard. i don't know what got into me, but i had the idea to rip up some huge, unsightly bushes.
and my dad's answer to getting rid of them was to pull them out with a strap and his truck.
gotta love that guy.
so in a matter of minutes, our front yard went from this:
you can see the mess of shrubs that lined the driveway
in the second picture--those are all gone now, too.
there was some crazy plant growing around the pear tree in the front yard that is gone now as well.
i couldn't bring myself to get rid of this bright yellow bush. maybe my front door will get a little yellow action to match him.
