My early morning thought progression of which I feel I must share though I feel sure my grown kids and their spouses wish I wouldn’t:
This is such a pretty tree–
It’s a shame this side of it isn’t as pretty since we lost that big limb…
On the other hand…it might help make it a great climbing tree. When the grands get old enough to climb trees, I wonder if they could use this flat shelf here like a step…
Yep, that’s what I thought!
Because I can. That’s why.
P.S. It occurs to me that perhaps my exhaustive research into SRC behavior (Straight Running Crazy) has begun to take it’s toll on me and the Squirrel Patrol Czar. I’m climbing trees and her eyes made her look a tad unbalanced in that last pic, didn’t they? Be nice if you comment. God don’t like ugly.
