Five Months On


The December devastation so hard to comprehend.

 Our birches,

 our wondrous birches,

 have met a wretched end.

 So sturdy at the base.

So frail at the crown.

What's left to do but cut them down?

I hope the trim works and you can save these trees......

Thanks, Feats. The front garden is tidier without all the fallen branches. Too much rain to take a decent photo.
