I've seen some wonderful blogs that highlight photos of one spot (such as "out my back door"), anywhere from 365 days of the year to once-a-month captures. I'm going to give it a try myself now too, with a monthly shot of a favorite spot nearby as I work out my relationship to this new place ~Boston~. In that spirit, here's a snapshot of my street-view, right from my couch.
You'll remember last month I posted on this lovely, lusty tree that lives across the street... it is so inspiring to me, and was one of the first things I fell in love with in this new home of ours. Well? Today, on the solstice ironically, a man with a bright orange ladder began to saw limb after limb. My friend and I feared the worst, but happily-- a complete chop-down was not in this tree's cards today. The result is a funky haircut (though I won't say that aloud nearby. Don't want to hurt her feelings...), but we are very relieved that the tree remains, and that the birds returned much later in the day.
