Remember this tree from the other day – the one with the pretty catkins? Well, I feel a real dill – it is an oak tree. I swear I have never seen these catkins before, even though I have lived here over twenty years. After all, I only started walking down that way since January. 😀
The snowball tree buds are gorgeous, like little xmas decorations! [By the way, I made up that name. It might not be a snowball tree at all!]
The street light was hooked back up to the powerline after 9pm last night. It was weird having it pitch black out front. Since it is an intersection it’s one of those orange ones.
Bad news, the elm tree has to be taken down to the stump, since it has both rot and termites. On the positive side, this means our house will warm up more in summer – but that is a good thing, as we usually leave our windows open during warm days to warm the house up, even in summer. And light, we will have so much more light – we noticed that with every branch that has fallen. Three now, in less than a year with another looking a bit shaky.
