Our Clearing as Painted by Édouard Manet

I don't know how I got my phone into Early French Impressionist mode, but it's finally happened: our clearing is visible from Bay Shore Drive. Specifically from the parking lot for Bay Shore Blufflands Nature Preserve.

Our plan is to keep most of the red and white pines — seen here — because they are such magnificent trees, and still allow a view.
