Little by Little

1 Aug

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe original part of our house was built around 1935, and judging from the size of the oak trees that grace our back yard, they were planted about the same time.  Which means that they are about at the end of their lives.

The violent storms we’ve had over the last couple of days have brought down some huge dead branches, as well as a lot of little stuff. Some of the branches that fell were large enough to do some serious harm if they had hit either of us.  There’s a lot more dead wood up there, but a lot of green as well, so we shall see. Besides, where will I string my clothesline?

The thought of cutting down those huge trees is heartbreaking. They will leave such a huge hole against the sky!

    Bringing them down by hand is certainly better than being brought down by Mother Nature…unless you want an open air patio.
