Pine Tree

The dead tree in this picture used to be a sand-submerged pine tree at Aaron's Beach.

I've taken its picture many times but it's never looked this bad.

For the first time since I've been visiting, there isn't one bit of green clinging to it.  

It's only a matter of time before it falls.

Speaking of falling,

I was alerted by my neighbor Julie earlier this week (or was it last?)

that my Number One Favorite Tree of All Time at Aaron's Beach had fallen.

I'll post pictures of that sad sight next week.

Click here for a 2011 post that shows (in the second and third pictures, if you squint) the pine tree above in happier days.  It also shows my favorite tree (fourth picture, far right) that I'll talk more about next week.

Because that's what I do here on this blog.  Talk about inanimate objects as if they were people.

I think I may need to get out more. Or perhaps the sinus pressure is finally doing me in.

Either way, have a great weekend.

Sorry to hear you've been so sick. Hope you get to feel much better so you can enjoy your weekend.

Weather pretty good here. Mostly a good week. A bit worrying when I can't really remember it all. Minding grandchildren features widely, and that is always fun.

I'm heading down next weekend, and I know it will be a shock to see the tree gone even though I'm prepared for it. And then I think to myself "It's just a tree and it was already dead". Hope you feel better soon. There's snow in the forecast here for Sunday into Monday. I'm not happy about it.

(Hoping you are feeling much better!) Since you mentioned something regarding writing about inanimate objects, you may just take after a certain Waverly Lane writer, who has posted a masterful account of the triangle of intrigue, between your father and two furnaces.

Hope you're feeling better!

I understand the tree thing. I remember my mom had a connection with a tree that, for reasons I don't recall, was cut down without her permission. She went up and sat beneath it and wrote a poem in its honor.

I've been photographing this one, too! Sad that the trees are falling apart on us but they've given us a lot of photographing opportunities...they will definitely be missed!
