Here is where it began: a yard tree we are sorely going to miss. Catalpa, in winter, with no hint of its elephant-ear leaves, pyramidal white flowerette blossoms and 12-in. long bean pods. It gave us plenty of shade, lots of birds' nests, several wood peckers, and even a big horned owl one year. Yes, we'll miss this tree. It was old. It was rotting from the inside. And it had to come down.
Tomorrow is another day. I need to rearrange, to make room for storage. And I'm planning on cutting some more big pieces with the chain saw. And learning to use my Peavy Hook. And, the forecast is for a sunny, beautiful day. Life is good.
