My Jurassic Park of a backyard took quite a hit from hurricanes Isabelle and Irene. I was heartbroken to lose so many of my favorite trees.
The yard is still littered with some that are so big we can't figure out how to remove them safely. The cats love them but they are getting hard to mow around.
Things have recently become even more complicated because we noticed that some of them are coming back to life.
My beloved giant black walnut that was nothing but firewood last fall is sprouting leaves! You can't take a chainsaw to something that wants to live so badly as that. I just hope The Mister feels the same way because I would love to have the walnuts for dyeing again.
