Disaster for the Cherry Tree

Mister Nizz

, ,


The other night, right after our dusting of snow, I was heading out for an errand.. and turned around just in time to see a Metro Bus smack right into one of the two cherry trees in my front yard. A sickening snap was heard! And the bus drove on.

I can't tell you how heartsick this makes me. Birds nest in this tree. Gar climbs in it. In the Spring, the cherry blossoms make the neighborhood look like cotton candy. You might recall the incident with the Cardinal babies. This was their nesting branch (and in retrospect, using Smoking Betty to quarantine the area was a very, very good idea.

If we lose this tree, it will be like losing an old friend.
