It was 10 years ago today that I was invited to be a USK Seattle blog correspondent. I had in mind a grander sketch but the day got busy.
There is a truly massive blackberry bramble in our neighborhood. It runs 100 feet wide, at least a couple hundred feet long, and 20 feet high. It constantly tries to take over our yard. It was 5 years ago that the Homeowners Association last tried to cut it back. Finally they hired a company to do so.
Between obligations, I had just a few minutes to sketch the man at work with the machine. I spoke with him after. He said he was a little worried he was "in trouble...with L&I * or something, even though I know I'm not doing anything wrong"!
The mower in front has a huge spinning blade underneath. It took down the entire bramble in just 2 days!
