It’s an interesting bit of synchronicity that I planned the topic for today’s blog weeks ago, and we heard from our landlords just a few days ago that the the crew from the tree removal company would be arriving this morning. Instead of my usual writing soundtrack of kidlets and Pandora, I’m being serenaded by the dulcet tones of chainsaws and machinery. It should be interesting how the landscape around here changes after more than a half dozen trees go to that big chipper in the sky. I suppose we can’t really complain – the ones marked for removal are in danger of falling and are close to the houses. Also, the last time this many trees were removed from the property was about eighty years ago.
Before I share some of my tree snaps from the past six weeks or so, once again I want to take a moment and direct you to some of my favorite professional, semi-professional, and talented amateur photographers. I’m posting these every Monday in May, in honor of National Photography Month.
