We are supposed to finally see the sun tomorrow. There was actually a warning to not look at the strange bright light in the sky.

Do Trees Bleed?

I thought my pussy willow was supposed to be a bush, not a 30′ tall tree, so I planted it next to my house. On Sunday I noticed a small see through crack in one of two trunks. The crack got so much bigger and the tree was noticeably bending by Tuesday morning. I found an arborist to come out that evening who said he could rearrange things for the next morning because it was an emergency, but it could fall overnight, damage the house and pull down the electrical wires. Right after he left, my neighbor came home and I told him we couldn’t park in our usual spots because of the tree and the work that needed to be done. He, let’s just call him Superman, said he would do it for me. His wife and I kept telling him that it was too dark and dangerous for one person, but he said no problem as he got out a ladder and a saw. 30 minutes later he had cut down the tree, turned the wood into logs, and cleaned up everything. And all he wanted for payment was the wood. The stump turned blood red overnight.

I couldn’t quite decide if this reminded me more of a bagel or an eye, so why not call it both.
