Is it possible to miss trees?
Last year, neighbors who live close by had some gorgeous, towering pines that overshadowed our yard, cut down.
If there had been anything that could have been done to persuade the neighbors not to cut down the pines, I would have tried but they had the final say.
They wanted more sun in their backyard.
So the decision was made and the trees, that had been there for a long, long time, were cut down.
To this day, I miss the old beauties.
They gave shade in the heat of the summer and looked gorgeous all frosted with snow and ice in the winter.
These days, when driving near pines, I always think of those towering healthy and giant trees that were so mercilessly chopped to smithereens.
It still makes me sad.
It's like I lost a couple of dear friends.
