We started our Labor Day weekend with a bit of work...helping Pa and Gram cut down a couple trees. The first one up was Gram's Rose of Sharon bush. Unfortunately, the last couple of dry summers had taken their toll on the bush.
The next tree was one of Gram's Brandford Pear trees. A section of it got taken out in a storm this spring/summer. They thought it best to take the rest of it down before another storm did more damage.
