A Little Tree Trimming

This afternoon I was cleaning my gutters and since I had my ladder out decided to do a little tree trimming.
Cleaning gutters, Winter Yard Work, House MaintanenceCleaning the gutters was not fun as I had to dig out wet dirty leaves. It will take days to get the dirt off of my hands 🙂

Tree Trimming, Yard WorkI thought that tomorrow was yard waste pick up day so decided to do enough trimming to fill up the container.

If you look at my post Overdue Yard Work you can see what the tree looked like before trimming started.

Branches, tree trimmingWell, this is a bit out of focus, but you can see that the container is almost full.

Later this evening I took the yard waste container out to the street, but then noticed that all my neighbors had out their recycling bins. We alternate weeks and unfortunately this is the wrong week. This causes a bit of a problem as I was counting on an empty yard waste container for rose pruning later this week. Now to figure out what to do.

I may be able to better consolidate the waste in the bin and at least get some pruning done.
