Here is Ricky and Cassie about to attack the root ball of the flowers which were long gone.  Cassie is not at all intimidated by the machete.
 
Cassie is discarding the flower foliage which now is kind of like a raisin to a grape.  We have been disappointed that no flowers grow in our pasture.
 
I hope Cassie gets her left hand out of the way of the machete.  Since she left with both hands, she must have.
 
And look at the power of that blow.  Completely severed the root ball!
 
I guess this root ball was a little tougher and took them both.  John Winslow was taking the pictures, but he also worked on the dismantling.  I don't intend to cast aspersions, but Cassie was the only one who was wet from top to bottom.  John also left out the pictures of the family of voles that were dislodged in the recycling.  No animals were injured in the recycling process.
