Bye Bye Tree -- Hello Sky
It's sad when you have to take down a tree that has served you well for many years, but the time had come for the 60 ft., 50 yr. old Arizona ash to go.
Good bye tree and thank you!
It's amazing to watch how the tree experts do it. All limbs are lowered on a rope and directed exactly where they want them placed ...
It was a nice cloudy day ...
The critter hole that had been made in the partly decayed limb that fell, whether it housed a woodpecker, owl or squirrel -- who knows? ...
I always did want a tall pillar in the garden with a pot on top ... :-) However, what I really want in a pot I probably can't afford, but couldn't wait to put something up there so I first tried a galvenized tub ...
Then a big pot. Which looks best to you? ...
I'm thinking of putting a combination of a thornless cactus with large pads, dyckias, yuccas, all of which I have, with silver pony foot overflowing. Whatch' think?
I'll wrap a chain around the trunk so the coral vine can cover the stump and more sun loving plants will go around the base. Please, please -- if you have any ideas they are welcomed. Redesigning this part of the garden will be a challenge, but there is always a challenge of some sort in gardening as well as in life ... :-)
