I haven’t had the time or desire to blog lately so I apologize for my lack of posts. I thought I’d take a quick minute to blog about a tree that is being cut down tomorrow.
Why am I blogging about this…. Because I couldn’t be happier about it!! It is a very pretty cherry blossom, but it starts dropping leaves late July/early August. And this is a major problem considering its close proximity to the pool
You can’t tell from this pic but trust me when I tell you that it has made keeping the pool area clean a complete nightmare! The leaves surround the pool deck & also fill the pool on a daily basis. I have been trying to convince my husband that it needs to go & he has fought me on this tooth and nail. He enjoys looking at it from his office. In my opinion, it also blocks our view of the pond from the living room and office windows. The negatives far outweigh the positives ( the few weeks that its in bloom in the spring)
Well I’m thrilled to report it’s coming down tomorrow & I couldn’t be more excited!!! We will be replacing it with something smaller that doesn’t shed ( possibly a Japanese maple)
There are plenty of other trees around our pool but none of them shed like that one
I had another tree cut down in the back (see the stump) about a month ago because it was shading the pool too much. The hubs fought me on that one too.
All this focusing on the exterior has me itching to paint the stucco! We haven’t even wrapped up our kitchen redo & I’m already moving on to the next project!
Speaking of kitchen, here is its current state
The side panel & upper cabinets are finished. We just need to order the new door fronts. I’m trying to decide between raised panel or shaker style. I’m leaning towards the raised panel so we won’t have to redo the backside of the cooktop island
That’s all I have for now. Thanks for being patient with me. I will try to post more regularly
