A little more road construction before-and-after. Now that the City thinks our hedge has been suitably massacred it's time to oust the trees that separate our lonely little sidewalk from a rather busy street. All in the name of progress. And making sure we have a nice expanse of exposed fence ripe for budding graffiti artists.
It really opens things up, huh? Yah, yah, it actually does. I'm sure we'll get used to it, and we still have lots of trees and foliage IN the yard. Embrace change, I say. Next step is for what the City folks call a "healthy pruning" of our trees that overhang the fence, so they can get their equipment closer in.
As an aside, the tear-out happened on Monday. It's all still sitting there. I'm sure there's a method to their madness. Somewhere.
