The above view is from our the left side of the property in August 2012.
 When we moved on to this property back in August 2012.
This view is right outside our deck in the back yard.
Over the years there has been some trees cut down and just left in the yard.
What I have done: Removed the vines, briars and small trees.

 This is a view from the bottom of the property looking up at the back of the house
 This is a view from the deck looking down

 Its hard to believe how much I have clean out.  To realize that this view was filled with limbs and briars and brush and vines its just amazing if I say myself.
 This view is to the right looking down from the deck in February 24 2012
 This view is from Charity bathroom window looking out
 This is a view from the bottom of the property and the view is to the right
 This view is on the right side of the property. Cleaned out a lot of limbs. I am hoping to make this a pick nic area later this spring or summer or fall.
