Riding down Nelson St. West the other day I discovered that another big old sugar Maple has been cut down, eliminating another grand old giant.
You may remember this big old maple which I pictured a month ago, right down at the end of the street, with its enormous woodpecker carved channel in this dead branch.
Well, it's gone; all that's left is a stump and a small woodpile still to be cleaned up/ I'll miss the old fella, and if you think I'm anthropomorphizing I don't care.
I wonder how long the May Apple that's been growing in its shade will survive.
It makes me worry about other big old but clearly unhealthy Sugar Maple on the street.
I couldn't see the stump in this yard, it was behind the house. But the big woodpile told me another one was gone. I may soon be counting and documenting the ones left for posterity!
A beautiful week here, sunny and actually warm! I plan to enjoy it.
