Field of Dreams - Part One

Let's review. When we moved into our house, it was surrounded by verdant, green lawns . . .

and hillsides with lush, or shall we say, over lush vegetation.

There were trees . . .

and tree stumps.

And then the destruction began. We started small. We tackled the fire bush, wild rose bush and Japanese knotweed on the hillside just behind the house just so we could see what we were working with. Then we brought in the big guns and really tore the hell out of the entire place. Gone now is the verdant lawn and overgrown hillside as are the trees and tree stumps. For months, we were surrounded by mountains of dirt, debris, roots and rocks. But no more. In the movie below, you'll see we're moving mountains.
