Panorama of Destruction
It is hard to convey the sheer power of the devastation of our front yard over the past week. We went from having a row of beautiful ancient pines, to having a debris field. Now, most of the debris has been cleaned up. Instead we have a mountain of woodchips and sawdust. The tree trunks have been cut to a level height in anticipation of next Spring's construction of a new rose arbor. The woodchips will form the basis for our new bed's mulch. In between now and next Spring, I will comfort myself with the images of Lee's roses (der Rosenmeister nursery!) climbing up and over our rose arbor. I can't wait to see what's possible!
