Bonfire at my house!

Well, the oak tree came down yesterday! AND I got my stiches out! By a nurse with surgical scissors and not a guys with a Gerber and pliers. But thanks for all the offers out there.

Here are some pictures of the tree in it's three phases.

It's still up...getting cut and ready...

It's falling...DOWN!

And there was something really facinating about this tree. Apparently long long ago when this tree was but a small start, it was chosen to be used as a fence post. And as it grew - it grew around the fencing! That wire is not just propped-up next to the tree - it's IN the tree.

So - now that the tree is down I really think I should have that bonfire. Friday or Saturday night not sure just yet. But everyone's welcome!
