We had our tree done all trimmed up and evened out so no more weight will contribute to her toppling over now . Papa and I spent the weekend cleaning up the majority of it up and colleting good fire wood for next year . The tree has lost a lot of its shading for us and the birds but it will however still start sprouting new branches and leaves over the next few years as it has been rejuvenated by the trimming .
It has been hot and humid since Friday here and we have been taking lots of water and lemonade breaks in the heat as we have been out in it . We finally got some well needed rain last night and a thunderstorm . Today is a rest day as our bodies are achy lol ! I have been popping outside today taking a few photos here and there !
All the space in the sky there you see used to be shaded by tree !
The guys that trimmed and cut off the big huge parts that fell off said she looks a bit naked now yup that she does but all that will fill in with new strong branches .
After a few hundred years I guess the rot just got to it !
But thankfully the rest of the tree is ok !
Mind you the birds seem to act funny when they try to land on what was once there and realizes they cant lol . The Woodpeckers have been feasting on the bugs in the wood on the ground now that caused the rot . And Miggs has been keeping an eye on them all .
My gardens are doing well despite the dry spell . The Butterfly weed is blooming and spreading like wild fire !
The Asters are beautiful as well !
The sky's have been clear with lots of sunshine and cloudy with threats of storms and rain , I love clouds especially dramatic ones like these.
The Barn Swallows have been busy tweet tweeting and flying about collecting bugs . I love the sound and sight of these little birds !
Stretching before his fly about lol !
I was able to sneak up behind him lol !
The wild grasses and flowers in the field beside us are soo beautiful and smell wonderful in the warm summer breeze !
My Shasta Daisy plant that I planted in memory of my Sister is blooming beautifully .
So all is doing well despite the busyness lack of rain and the heat and humidity and that's our summer so far . Hope your having a wonderful summer so far to !
Until next time !
