High Winds



I woke up this morning and looked out the back window to find that our Cherry tree had blown over last night. 45 mph winds and soggy ground will do that, but it will usually pull the tree up, but our cherry tree was broken, at the base.

I will miss that tree, it bared fruit every summer and if you got to them before the birds did, it was a treat to bite into those fresh cherries. (It wasn't if they weren't ripe, though.)

You could tell when they would get sweet when the birds, usually Crows, Robins and Starlings would gather in the back yard and feast by the dozens.

Goodbye, Sweet Cherry Tree. :(

Awww, that so sucks about the tree! Cherry blossoms smell wonderful too. What a bummer.

Wahhhh! That was a cool tree, be glad A. It did not land on your house and B. That was the only thing the 45mph winds did. Glad you guys made out fine otherwise. And oh yeah, Jack is ADORABLE! He looks like you and Kate. Bobbie looks happy as always. Glad you had a good birthday. I was thinking of you.
