Driveway update

Today's excitement has been the removal of the tree in the front garden/driveway.  I rather liked this tree (hawthorn) but its roots had started cracking the driveway and it was getting a bit big and Ian's car was getting covered in bird poo and sap etc... so I grudgingly conceded it was time for it to go.

The tree surgeons also took out the conifer on the corner as well while they were there.  They've just ordered a new stump grinder so will be back in a few days to grind the stumps out.

The living room is even lighter and brighter now which is really nice.

Any suggestions on what to plant in place of the hawthorn?  We really want something that isn't going to get bigger than 6 foot or so, and is upright rather than having a horizontal spread... any ideas?

Scuse the phone camera quality pics...
