A huge branch was snapped off my beloved tree, which was a gift from my mom in 2009.
And a few other smaller ones also fell off.
And now my poor little tree looks like this.
I hope losing such a large portion of branches doesn't cause problems for the tree? I can only imagine this had something to do with Snowmaggedon, or maybe some fatass squirrel was jumping onto the branches, I'm not sure. I'm also not sure what I was smoking when I left all this mess last fall:
This area usually looks nice and tidy, like this....
It looked like the Silver Reed grasses were coming to strangle me with their tenticles!
It took me hours to cut everything down, and clean up the mounds of leaves from the ground. I think it's extremely unfair that we have NO large trees in our front or back yard, yet we have leaves EVERYWHERE! BAH!
Glimerace the frog was pretty much buried by the time I got the lawn bag out. Stupid leaves!
The only good thing I saw during my cleanup was this:
My hydrangeas are already starting to bud! Champions, I tell ya. I'm guessing I still have about 48 hours of cleanup ahead of me on the other sides of the backyard....
Tub full of mud and water? Oh, hell no! Sara from last fall: you suck.
