Sanna's Bag

tree


Benita, at Basically Benita.com , is taking a weekly photo of a local scene as a record of the seasonal changes in her part of the country. ( Over the last three weeks, autumn has hit her hard, and the photos are lovely.) So I thought it might be fun to do the same.
This is our front yard maple tree. The top was broken out in a storm, and the branches projecting into the yards have been cut back, so it is growing rather like an espaliered fruit tree, without the espalier. As you can see, yesterday was slightly misty, and Maple was pretty much in full leaf.
As for yesterday's rant, check back and see what Heide had to add. Her husband is Air Guard, and has an idea of what-all is involved. Holy Crow!
Secret Service guarding Presidents and their families is starting to look like a growth industry. As I understand it, a pres and his family will get coverage for life. Of course, you have to be willing to take a bullet for your assigned person, but what are they gonna do if you chicken out at the last moment - shoot you?

    I tried that with my neighbors trees (which are huge and perfectly tree shaped) last year. I was just thinking I'd have to remember to take some photos again this year.

    Yes, Presidents do have protection for life. Obama has more due to the fact that he is black and president. There are many white extremists and KKK out there! Too many nuts in the world...

    Woohoo!!! You have started! This is going to be fun!

    Save all your pictures and number them in order. We'll turn them all into videos so we can watch the change of the seasons when we are done.

    Should be fun to watch the tree change during the year.
