Friday: flying trees

Woo'll never guess what I saw while I was watching out my front window yesterday!
Flying trees!





Yup, our neighbor said when he planted it 50 years ago, it was only a thin little stick. He had very mixed feelings about cutting it down, but now it's causing some problems with his patio & stuff, so he decided to have it removed. Bye bye, Old Oak.
I wish humans made sure their trees have enough space to grow as they should - and not be in the way of something else- before they plant them. It made mom very sad to see this beautiful tree cut down too. Of course, sometimes it needs to be done. My bipeds had a smaller tree cut down that had been planted directly under the electrical wires of 2 houses -- But then they planted our little Hoopsi where it can get to be 40 , 50, or even 60 feet tall without creating a problem. We hope it gets to be a big beautiful spruce and live a long long long life.

I wonder what I'll see outside my window today?

Sounds like the perfect opportunity to chase a squirrel who now is missing an escape route.

P.S. - We agree. We hate to a great older tree like that have to go.

P.P.S. - We had to laugh. Our word of the day is havenest. Sort of fitting for a tree coming down.

Wow, now that is a sight even the old Momster has never seen. We see lots of flying leaves, but no trees - as long as the tornadoes stay away.

Happy weekend.

I always hate to see people cut down perfectly healthy trees too. But, I understand they can sometimes cause problems.

Cool pics though!

hey Jack-a-roo and Miss Moo,

Oh my dawg! You have flying trees where you live? Do they drop squirrels as they fly by?

It is very sad to see big majestic trees chopped down. I hope its wood is put to good use.
