I'm still trying to finish up some loose ends in the backyard. In the last few weeks, I've been doing some chopping, moving and stacking of wood up back. Back in September, we had a couple of trees cut down to make some room. Trees, once they get rolling, grow fast. Our plan is to try and finagle some more late afternoon sunshine in August and September. When the sun starts dipping in mid-August, these trees have grown so much, they're blocking the rays of ol' Mister Sun. Hopefully, this tree work will mean more warmth on the deck, longer in the afternoon. The trees we won't miss and the chopped wood will provide fodder to take the chill off next fall.
