Take a little off the top

Anthony's mom, who owns the house we live in, offered to have someone come over and trim the two large evergreen / juniper trees in the front. I don't know much about the process of trimming trees properly so I was grateful she volunteered to arrange for the task to be completed.

I got a surprise when I came home yesterday. The trimming was more of a 90 percent removal of the trees. I have a feeling that's not what she had in mind (it certainly isn't what I had in mind) but the branches can't be glued back on. So, we're stuck with the result.

I am trying to look on the bright side. If we put Christmas lights on them this year, we won't need a ladder.

Flashback to October 2014 when we got the keys
to the house and what one of the trees looked like until
a few days ago...
Here's what the same tree looks like now.
If I want to enjoy shade from it I'll have to lie down
really really close to the bottom.
