a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Here It Was and Here It Is

Was
Is
 Was
was
Finally cleared!
A few trees went missing 
A farm always has a post pile.
No more fence. No more briers. 
There was stock wire, chicken wire and barbed wire.  The posts have been removed to use again. The wire had been sorted for reuse and I am declaring this short ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY FEET of back-breaking, hand-ripping, stinging ant, horrible heat index work done. Hopefully now most of it can be mowed.  

The Rose of Sharon can see the sun.  Equally happy are the wild strawberries, Dad's Currant bushes, Day lilies. Mom's Irises and Granny's Lilac and the Bridal's Wreath.  I only disturbed two irises and they were transplanted.  We can see someone driving in!

Happy plants.  Happy me.

Gail,

You've worked really hard clearing/cleaning this area. Now you can see people coming and going on the property. Do the dogs alert you to when someone is coming in? Looks really good, can I borrow you?

Linda Kay said...

Yea, Gale...great job. I'm with you on clearing out the brush to let the good plants breathe. I'm sure you need to get a cup of coffee and sit in one of those chairs to enjoy looking at the fruits of your labor!

Happy Day!
Isn't it wonderful to accomplish a task one has contemplated for weeks.
There are some who can't envision the hard work it is to clean, sort, split, prune, clear . . .
And in 100 degree temps . . . I'd say, Well Done Girl . . .
Very nice indeed!

Looking good Gail, that was lots of work:)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Wow, what a difference! That took a ton of work I'm sure.

TexWisGirl said...

when you set your mind to something, you're stubborn until it is done. :)

Susan Kane said...

A massive amount of hard labor, that! How long did all that take? Did you draft any relatives?

Now, beauty can get its sun.

LindaG said...

You did an amazing job, Gail. God bless. ♥

Karen S. said...

The best kind of work ever! Great job girl!

Cynthia said...

What a lot of work, but I'm sure it seems worth it as it all looks lovely now.
