Arizona Ash, please don't crash... down on me...

This awesome vid by Kathleen Kloba about sums it up. The trees were a blessing, and I feel REALLY guilty cutting them down now...but it has to be. They are having problems...and I'm looking at my yard with the sticks, loose branches that fell, and the leaves they drop in the Spring. Keep that in mind, and I'll get through Friday. Until then, enjoy this video. It pretty much sums it up, and the creepy thing is the yard and trees look kinda like mine!! All I can say is I didn't plant 'em!!

Where did you find that video? Pretty apropo for your tree cutting.

There really is nothing new under the sun. :)

Loved it! Amazing how we find ourselves laughing and crying at the same time during endings/beginnings. Some of my most wonderful healing belly laughing has been in the midst of memories at the funeral of a truly loved one.

The loss of a tree is so personal. We know that too well in these parts. I'm still shocked at times by the damage the storm did last December.

Mourn the loss and think of planting a new life.

Even though all things must pass, there is always a bit of nostalgia when they do and we realize that season of our life is over never to be retrieved. I guess it's one of the things that makes life so precious.

Peace,
Brian

I hope the stumps get ground down. I so dislike, hate, tripping on those.
You should plant a tree in memory of them...
Maybe a giant redwood like they have in Cal-e-forn-ya.

Yeah that would be so cool!

Brian, yeah, I'm taking pictures...and of the spring leaf and branch droppings!
Paige, yeah, I'm getting the stumps ground down and trees down for a good price from folks I trust. That's a good thing.
I'm thinking of a live oak back there in honor of the other ones. Strong tree, no fall leaves=no raking!

Thanks all, for not chastising me for cutting down a tree!
