As of my last post, I couldn't bear to take an "after" picture of the side yard after the neighbor removed all of the trees on the other side of the fence. But I've decided it needs to be documented, and my husband took a picture last week. I'm reposting the "before" picture, also. Sadly, I realize that there was a "before" and an "after" but the "after" might as well be "never again in my lifetime."
Notice the crane in the background - yes, the trees are still coming down.
