Doing that happy "kill the invasive species" dance

The joy, the satisfaction, the sheer pleasure found in destruction.  That's what I'm talking about today.  OK, so I admit that perhaps, just perhaps, I'm taking a bit too much pleasure in this annihilation of habitat.  I could have more sympathy with the mini-ecosystem I'm destroying.  But, well, why not be honest?  I don't have any sympathy here WHAT SO EVER.  And that's all there is to it. 

Let's do a bit of "before" and "after".  Not exactly after-after, since they are still ripping stuff out.  Let's say "before" and "during".  I'll post "after," well, um, after "after" is done.  Or something like that.  Nevermind, you get the idea.  Photos!

Before:




During:



I didn't even know that wall angled down like that!  I mean, really, who knew?  And all of that has been done in under 6 hours.  I bow down to the yard guys.

Tune in later this week, I'll post mark the end of that nasty garden bed and show what it looks like when properly set up for a shining, happy future.
