Now you see them...
We have never loved the 2 big crepe myrtles at the front door. You may remember, last winter I attempted to at least trim them to a more manageable size... It didn't really help. They are huge, block the house, and are messy. Plus...they just aren't terribly pretty when it comes to crepes. I love crepe myrtles, but these just weren't doin' it for us...
We had talked about moving them, hoping they'd be a little more tame, but it just wasn't happening. M got a chain saw for Christmas...and put it to good use last weekend!!
Amazing the difference!
M dug up the stumps, too. We have big plans for the front yard and removing a few more plants and extending the grass back a bit, and adding back in a few plants that are more evergreen, colorful, and not as random!
We can't get over the difference - and don't know why we waited so long to make the change!
