There was a lot of noise around our home last week. We had four dead Ash Trees in our yard and had them cut down. They started with the big tree out back…
Had a little problem when this tree came down. The workers accidentally cut our internet and cable TV line. They were wonderful about getting someone out the next day to get it fixed.
This next photo is of the huge tree that was out front…by the time I took the picture, they had already cut a lot of the limbs off.
They put the ropes up in the tree and attached the ropes to the back of their truck and then drove the truck forward to pull the tree down.
It sure was a big bomb when the tree hit the ground!!
They put a rubber trash can over our lamp-post to protect it. I thought for sure the tree was going to take it down when the tree came falling down…but it just missed it. They weren’t worried, but I sure was!
Just couldn’t believe how big this tree trunk was…4 feet wide.
I was really sad to see these trees go, but they had to come down since they were dead. All the Ash trees in our neighborhood are dead…it is so sad that the Ash Borer Beetle has killed all of them. We have heard that there will be no more live Ash trees in the state of Ohio within the next year.
We will be planting a new tree in the front yard next Spring…thinking about a Bradford Pear tree. We don’t need to plant a new one in the backyard…we have a beautiful Maple tree out there already and it should be starting to show it’s pretty Fall colors here soon.
Had my show on this past Sunday…it was a very cold and windy day!!
This is the only photo that I took, because right after getting my booth set up…we got a huge gust of wind and it knocked a back drop board into my displays and one of my tables fell over and merchandise went everywhere…down to the ground!! Luckily…nothing broke and several ladies that were in the booth helped my sister and I get things back into place. Despite the wind…I did have a great show.
Now to get ready for my big Christmas show that is in 7 weeks.
Until next time……. blessings from me to you, Cindy
