Are you wondering what I have photographed on the farm today?
In a previous posting, I showed you several trees I lost this year due to the severe drought we suffered over the summer. I also wrote I would be cutting the dead trees down.
As you can see, this is not a small tree. Before taking the main trunk down, the carpenter (aka handyman)cut many of the lower branches off by using the chain saw.
I knew the tree was dead, but it still broke my heart to see it come down. It had been growing for several decades and now it was gone forever.
"Wait a minute!" .....is what I shouted as he was loading up the trailer. "How about cutting me some slices for stepping stones", I said, "or maybe, I could make a wall clock out of one of the slices."
At least, I will have something left behind to remember the beautiful cedar tree.
Don't forget to click on each photo to see it in a larger size...
