thankless yardwork

Don is determined to get a handle on the backyard jungle this weekend. He keeps running into snags, though. For instance, when he tried to dig up this baby maple tree (they're all over the place, thanks to the unchecked seeding of our giant maple for the last ten years), he ran into a mysterious disturbance.

We pulled it out, and it turned out to be three sheets of copper flashing. Who knows why it got buried in the backyard, but there it is.

Things like this make for slow going.

correction...it's not copper...it's just THAT dirty

Yeah, what is it about roofing materials in your landscape? I find old shingles and crap everytime I rip something out or prune something existing.
