Farewell, Podocarpus

The tree guys just carted away the 30-plus-foot-tall podocarpus tree from our lightwell. Whoever planted it, back when it was probably a wee 3-ft sapling, put it right next to the house, where its roots could push up under the foundation and also start working on the pipes. It was a beautiful, lush thing, adding so much peaceful green where we would otherwise be looking right into the neighbor's dining nook. Which now we are. I'm bummed. I loved that tree.

Also, I'm not making many comments these days, because my seasonal_spuffy posting day looms, and I am nowhere near ready. I hope my offering doesn't get me drummed out of the corps.

I'm really sorry to hear about your beautiful tree. I'd be heartbroken, too!
I'm still missing the neighbours' weeping willow that fell a few years ago...
See you on seasonal_spuffy !

Sorry to hear about your tree problems. I know what you mean about leaves making a nice shelter though-- as I noticed one winter when (still in my cowgirl jammies!) I looked directly into the started eyes of my neighbor. I'd gotten used to my japanese maple screening our living rooms!

It is so hard to lose a tree. It becomes part of ones 'peaceful green' sightline.

Alas about the tree. But I'm very much looking forward to the SS offering! I have no doubts it'll be fun. :)
