Bobcat & Harley

We stopped to smell the Clematis first. It's really bloomin' this year!


That deserves a close-up:


Now for the actual work. I got out my manly Stihl 025 chainsaw and cleared the brush and overgrowth out the west fence line, while Pam used the sissy electric clippers to trim the south hedges:
Hedge trimming

Pam, however, ran into a bit more excitement than I did:

He slithered right across her foot.. I had taken a load of brush down to the burn pile, a good 1/8th mile away, but had no trouble hearing her scream... Rolling on floor laughing.. I guarantee he regretted messin' with Pam, though:
Take THAT!

Next on to the real work:

Two things money can't buy: Love, and home-growed tomaters.

Ah well, enough work for one day!
