LatSoF- Blue sky


This Willow tree was planted in 1956 (from a tiny twig)  and look how huge it is now. I love trees no doubt about that, but this one gets my nerve every time we have a storm. We had this incident last year that a huge branch broke off and almost hit the south part of our house. That incident triggers my anxiety. Because every time I know a storm is coming I couldn't keep myself from being so scared!! The other day, a tree cutter came and from this photo below....
 

It became like this now wohooo!! Hubby didn't cut it off but told the trimmer to just trimmed the tree. Well it's well trimmed now very trimmed almost bald. Ah hummm, it's BALD lol!!  Now I can see the blue sky and I wouldn't have a hard time taking picture of the moon.

They are beautiful trees, but I can see your dilemma. The house is indeed much more important than the tree in this case. Look forward to some moon photos from you now. :)

Happy Friday!

I understand your anxiety over that tree. We had one trimmed last year for the same reason. Not to worry, it filled in even thicker than it was originally. So, enjoy that view of the sky while you can! =)

Thanks for your visit and comment on my sky view post.

We had our tree cut down and replaced with something we could trim and manicure ourselves without the big expense....your willow will grow more uniform and thicker now with lots of low hanging beauty!!!!

Thanks for stopping by to visit with me at Driftwood Tree on the Shore. Have a great Wednesday.

What a difference! I do not see how there are enough branches left that the tree can live!
You commented about alligators, in my Watery Wednesday post - we are way too far north for them. But the river does look like there should be gators, doesn't it. I hadn't thought of that... I am in Ottawa, Canada, sort of straight north from the western part of New York state.
On your other blog, I was so interested in the rain chains that I got lost in their website. Now I want one...
