He hath made everything beautiful in His time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end..
Ecclesiastes 3:11

Farewell old friend
You served us well,
And gave us worth
Before you fell
Unto the earth.
Now work begins
When journey ends!
Poetry by me, AJP.

I shot this image of my husband with chainsaw after our weeping willow tree fell to the ground during a terrible wind storm, on Oct. 26th

    There is beauty in this sadness.

    He certainly has his work cut out for him!! I'm sure you folks have to mourn a little bit about your tree!

    Thank you for your comments...Yes, it was a glorious tree but I saw the handwriting on the wall because it was getting ancient and rotting in places.
    It did not surprise me to see it go down considering the severity of the storm
    we had Tuesday night...I am thankful to have taken many pictures of the tree
    when it was the most beautiful and will cherish those memories.

    It is sad to see the tree begin to rot and know that its time is about up. It was a beautiful tree, I always marveled at those long tendrils and the height of the tree. Now the tree will be cut and stacked and probably keep you warm this winter.

    Another great capture of your husband working on the tree. I hope the wood keeps you warm for a long time.

    Oh no! Not that beautiful willow! Most of our trees are the boring pines. I so love the willow. Terrific shot.

    So sad, but you captured this so well, Andrea. Like the bit of red showing on your husband's hat.

    Amsha....We loved this 100 year old weeping willow tree but sadly a terrible storm knocked it down and my husband was cutting away the debris left all over the ground...The trunk is still
    there and parts of the limb bends over to make an arch way....I wish the tree was still standing
    upright but tornadoes have destroyed many trees and massive old trees like this was are
    vulnerable to be struck by lightning and fall over from wind storms also..
