Here is our sad pine tree in the front yard. As you can see on the right hand side it is dying off. We hated to do it but it had to come down. We had it trimmed last summer in hopes that the whole tree wasn't affected but it was not to be.
Wednesday afternoon three young guys came by and went at it. This young fellow was up the tree just like a squirrel!
All the branches off first.
Then down it came. They came back this morning and chipped it all and cleaned up. We will (I think) be grassing it and making a small garden there in it's place.
Meanwhile in the backyard Butterscotch stopped by briefly.
As did many other creatures.
Chippy was racing around so quickly I couldn't get a photo of him facing frontwards. You can see how full his little cheeks are!
The male cowbird's are back. A small flock of them spent quite awhile at the feeders.
Tuesday morning we had to take the car in for service. As we were waiting I noticed this lovely car in the showroom. I imagine it would be fun to drive!
We popped quickly into a thrift store and I spotted this record. It is very rare here to see a Sonny and Cher record so we purchased it. My goodness, does Cher sing beautifully.
And lastly Janice called over and mentioned she was overrun with eggs. A friend has chickens and gives Janice eggs when they are laying like crazy. There originally was a dozen but we had an omelette. Love the pale green egg!
Rainy and mild here today but it isn't supposed to last. The weekend is to be cold and Monday the forecast is snow!
