In all of the views outside my upstairs window, the one consistent view was that of our old willow tree. Either covered in snow and ice on a cold winters day or drizzled in green leaves and sparkling in a setting sun...it was that one focal point that made us smile, since bringing it home as a small stick in a tiny pot years ago.
We loved that tree for numerous reasons so the decision to take it down was a difficult one. But we did it nonetheless.
It took years to get to the size it was, and less than two hours to take down. It will be surely missed.
