And Now There Are Six

The little copse of Birches suffered an overgrowth failure. The now-missing front tree (that was dorked up by someone previously topping it), grew a “waterspout” that was so burdened with pollen-pods that the top snapped off last week.So with a few nice days ahead before another wet-weather system rolls in off the Pacific ocean, I decided to remove it with my Stihl chainsaw-on-a-stick… Now the pathway up the embankment is more open and fewer dangly birch-pods festoon the remaining trees.So with that done it’s grillin’ time, with some zucchini and asparagus, and re-heating a piece of petite fillet.

  1. I didn’t know Birch trees made pollen pods. My Dad had a bunch growing like that in a nice flagstone planter in our front yard where I grew up. He called them “Clump Birches” or “Paper Birches”. Really nice trees, and I was sad when I looked at our old house with Google because the trees were gone.

    But the two Maple trees I planted from spinner seeds 50+ years ago are still there!

      Now is the time for real change! Plus we get Tahoe!!?? On the other hand, we’re stuck with the stoner Tahoe “wellness” centers, and the Tahoe (Non)Development Commission…
