On Saturday, [ profile] quatorze's parents came to help us clear away some - well, quite a few actually - alders from our backyard. Here are some before-and-after pictures I took.

More or less the same shot as the previous one, with the alders gone - and you can actually see the birches that were there all the time!

A second shot before the harvesting, with Quatorze's Dad entering the scene for some serious business.

Thanks to Quatorze and her Dad, so much fewer alders, so much more birches!

You really cannot see any other trees for all the alders, can you?

But now you can make out the birches - and the remaining alders...

Where did this passage come from? Where did this passage come from?

Suddenly there was a sort of a small clearing visible. Perhaps next year one might actually make out the brook behind this all?

This is what remained of the alders - in addition to the pile of wood on our front yard, waiting to be cut into firewood.
