I'm grieving trees. The new owners of the house across the street cut down two beautiful tall old Italian cypress trees and two shade trees. It was senseless and horrific.Trees are rare here on the arid plains, and in my old neighborhood the trees have survived for decades against the odds.
I won't even cut down the dead tree in my back yard. Linus (above) climbed it this week -- it's the first tree he ever noticed. He's my toothless wonder, a 7-year-old FIV survivor and ultra love Puppy.
Seen in the same tree are Flip (top branch) and lookalike tuxedo boy Jerry, who is a new feral.
