In the front yard, I had two wonderful OLD maple trees. This one was estimated at 65' tall.
Though still alive, it was dying. The other night during a thunderstorm, I got up to be sure it was still standing. I worried that it would take out my house ~ or the neighbor's. I had hired a tree company to cut it down, but they had not yet shown up.
Today was the day. I was fascinated watching them take her down. It was like a well orchestrated ballet.
The last cuts :(
The tree was located on what we call the tree lawn, also known as a hell strip. Unfortunately city ordinance does not allow me to replace it.
On a happier note, Maple Sugar Hearts is finally bound. It sure took me long enough.
It is even labeled :)
Nothing is on the frame at present time. I did draw out a little mat to hook that I hope to attach to the top of a vintage picnic basket.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
