things I observed on my walk last evening

Three tree trunks growing from one spot
Trio of finials
Four trios of windows

If you have any trios you’d like to share I’d love to see them. Just copy my link and post it into your own post. I’ll be sure to check it out and leave a comment. Have fun!

A Community Effort

thanks to Becky B for hosting Walking Squares

Today as I started on my walk I noticed that the neighbours were out with their rakes and yard bags helping our friend on the corner. Ms. I was recovering from knee surgery and her husband was in Florida helping a friend. They asked me if I had more leaf bags so I walked back to my house and retrieved the extra bags that we had plus my rake. Did I ever mention that I actually like raking leaves.

After dropping all of its leaves we filled 31 leaf bags

Sunday Trees – May 15, 2022

….unusual trees that I saw in Amboise but very common throughout Europe

This is a form of pruning deciduous trees called Pollarding. It prevents the trees from becoming too large and gangly. It is considered a severe form of pruning and does not work on all trees.
