Trees & Neighbors

Plus
We were so sad to know that our neighbor was planning to remove two big trees from his backyard. Sure, these trees were well into the winter of their lives, but they offered a much appreciated deep cool shade in the late afternoon that is quite a treat in the Texas heat.

Now they are gone, and while the shade is not as deep, it's not as sunny as I imagined it was going to be. We most definitely need to plant something in front of my kitchen widow cuz it gets hit hard when the sun is setting. All in all, it's not so bad, but it's always sad to lose a tree.

Thankfully, the fence is covered in roses and honeysuckle so we don't have to see the tree size holes they must have left… we think our pines will be happier too.
