Metaphorically speaking. Yesterday my neighbour came over with his chainsaw to try and help us out with removing part of the tree trunk. We got a couple of pieces off, but for the most part it is still a giant stump in the ground. So I'm going to call someone in. It feels a bit like defeat, but I now at least have a vision for what I'd like to happen back there which will help, I hope, in making it happen.
