Cut 'em down! ;)
Actually, there is a tree that I keep having Steve lop branches off of each spring. It isn't in the picture, but it is a tree on the south east side of the garden. When it grows too tall, it shades my garden plots. Really I'd like to cut it down, but it is too big for a one man job since it is so close to the house.
While I was out there, I took other pics too. Some macros, in fact: (you can click on the pic to make it larger)
It was interesting to me to see how fuzzy the branches on the Sumac Tree are. It makes for interesting textures, that's for sure!
I hope that you have a terrific Friday and a wonderful weekend!
