Resting on our Laurels

ME: (giving directions) We're the yellow farmhouse right on the corner.
FRIEND: Oh, I know that house! It's the one with the crazy overgrown laurel hedges!
ME: ...

And that's when I decided we really, really needed to cut back the giant laurel.

We had the landscapers do the actual cutting, but to keep the price down, Brett and I helped haul away the literal ton of debris that resulted.

This smile did not last long. Laurel is surprisingly heavy.
Yes, that is an entire dumpster in front of our house.
... An entire dumpster full of laurel.
 And we're not even done yet.

If anyone needs me, I'll be passed out over here.


  1. Jacks can always be counted on to help out. Cough. By providing entertainment anyway ;) Buster & Daisy from Quince Cottage say "hi!"

  2. Wow, looks like you had a long day of cleanup! And your dog must be exhausted from all that watching he did. Thanks so much for sharing at Inspiration Thursday! I'd love to invite you back again this week. The link up goes live Wednesday night at 9 EST and all day Thursday. See you there!
