Happy Earth Day, folks…

In life it was more vivid. The dry bark as ashen as chapped lips bounded by streams of reddish brown wet bark, it looked seriously unhealthy and I said as much to a neighbor passing by.

Nonsense, she assured me. It’s just fine. Why, once she had to have a tree removed and the stump was gushing water, as if they’d nicked a water line by some improbable accident.

Well, okay… but I remain unconvinced. This can’t be healthy… though maybe we take maples for worse during syrup season.
