I've already crossed a task off my list! But I can't take the credit. It goes to Darcy and Sean. They had already removed them by the time I arrived home last Wednesday. It's great because Sean wanted planters for his garden and we wanted a bigger deck. Win win, win. I only wish I could have taken a 'before' picture for a comparison.
An 'after' will have to do. Bring on the patio parties!
