Today, while I was out, my Pete cut down my favourite tree. It was growing so beautifully in our front yard, right near the driveway.
Ants had built a super highway along its trunk and branches.
They have chewed holes into the tree and made it weak. In the past few weeks we have had a couple of storms. Each storm had cause another branch to break and fall. It was becoming dangerous and had to go.
He completely filled the trailer, ready to take to the dump.
It was such a sad sight to see when I arrived home.
Thankfully he had filled a vase with its blossom and left it on the bench for me.
Better than flowers you buy at the shops…
