Trees Coming Down
My neighbor’s 3 Catalpa Trees are ancient and quite rotten. They have been declared dangerous not only to sewer lines, sidewalk upheaval, but also for the possibility of falling branches.
I am sure that my neighbors will miss these lovely trees, and the shade they offer in summer.
Did you know that on one night during the fall season, all the leaves come down at once?
For the last 20 years I have raked these leaves out of my yard and the storm drains because they make a slippery, clogging mess. The leaves are huge.
I have mixed feelings because the trees are dangerous and these trees have a specific lifespan, which they have exceeded, but because they have always been a part of my experience I wonder about them.
The picture at the top of the page is what I see from my office door. It is the painting/view on that wall.
The 100 year old cherry tree came down 2 weeks ago from across the street. Lots of change happening.
Necessary change brings up many feelings too. Are people working on their trees in your neighborhood? How does that change the landscape for you?
If you purchase anything from Amazon from my site, I will receive a few beans in my bucket. Thank you.
