and the tree fell down

and the tree fell down

This tree was as much a part of the house I grew up in as the house I grew up in. We used to hide under it. We used to want to build a tree house in it. (The sap and needles were somewhat discouraging of our plans.) It’s a shame that it is gone. Darn those gusty, gutsy winds.

(You can’t see it in the picture, but I’m pretty sure the tree is blocking the entire street off to the left.)
