The end of summer

 WHAT'S HAPPENING - The hubby was home for 8 days! I think this is a record since he has been working in "The oil field".  During that time, we trimmed the bushes! -

That is not a hedge trimmer! That is a 3 foot chain saw! I told him to bring out the heavy artillery!
The next day we did the other side of the house.
This is after trimming one side of the bushes. You can see how high they were.

This is after - it won't stay this bare for long, they grow back so fast!

My niece and her daughter came from CT to visit for a day. We got together with them for lunch.
