Hello my friends ~ we have been busy around the Vintage Home ~
We had a new roof put on the house on Saturday and then ~ well, we (have) now had this walnut tree in our front yard. It was very messy and the walnuts just killed the grass. Frankly, Mr. Vintage and I were tired of picking up the walnuts.
We hired someone to cut it down. As much as I really did not want to (yes, I am a tree lover), we had to do it ~
There he is ~ this man was like a monkey. He would shimmy up that tree and just cut, cut, cut. I was in awe ~ he knows his craft VERY well.
It was really unbelievable that one man could take down such a huge tree.
Now you can see the house. See all the dead grass? That is what a walnut tree does. The nuts have a toxin in them that kills grass.
Well, I was so pleased I had to decorate the porch for fall ~
I didn't have any straw, so I used pine chip that I use for the chicken coop. Sorry girls, mommy needed it to decorate ;-)
I had to use my little scarecrow that Mr. Vintage bought me ~
~ XO to you Mr. Vintage ~
