When large trees are cut down they leave large stumps.

This tree was cut down after a large limb fell where Charlie had been splitting wood.

We were forced to remove the tree near the woodshed when we discovered it was hollow.

The stump in the middle of the picture is about 3 feet in diameter.

This enormous stump might have made a great natural planter.

Most of the stump had rotted away.

Charlie is systematically removing the stumps in the yard even though it dulls the blade on the chainsaw.

Less than half a stump remains.

Going, going .  .  .

The stump is just a memory.


What has you stumped?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
