". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

Bye-bye, Deck

Tree Freedom!

This is for Elephant's Child, who wanted to see the slope of the ground under there.

Piece of deck grown into the tree.

Who is that guy and why does he keep showing up in my pictures?

In the photos the piece of deck that runs alongside the sunroom next to the sliding glass door is still there. It's gone now, along with the opossum that was living under it. There is nothing but dirt and rock outside our back door. I'm not looking forward to next week's rain.

Does that ground slope TOWARDS the house? It looks like it does.

I'll bet your backyard feels 3x bigger with that deck gone!

No, EC. It slopes away, thank goodness. At least where the tree is it does.

And yes, the back yard already looks much, much bigger!
