The tree that was cut down has made a big difference in the look of our back yard because it was along the fence line and gave us a lot of privacy, not to mention a haven for the birds, and it softened the look of the fence.
I miss the tree. It was a big beautiful Elaeagnus tree.
Let me show you some of the changes that have occurred in our back yard since we moved in 15 years ago.
This was the back yard looking toward the back of the house (before we painted the house) and before the patio was layed, and before the pergola was built, and before the back yard was fenced in.
The back yard when we moved in. A tree stump in the middle of the yard. One tree.
The above photo shows the neighbor's tree that was recently cut down.
This is the neighbor's house, minus the tree. It looks so bare now. We had the privacy fence put up several years ago.
So you see, many changes have occurred over the years.
And many more changes will come!
