The trees that were trimmed a couple years ago have burst forth with new growth; you can't tell that they were cut. And the condo association is marking new trees and shrubs for drastic pruning. It's a good thing, I guess, but I always feel the tension in the battle of chain saw and leaf blower against the natural burgeoning of the trees.
The beautiful if invasive albizia have been exceptionally profuse and fragrant this year.
|These are REALLY big trees, this viewed from my 10th floor balcony.|
I treasure the cycles of sun and moon, the migration of birds, my own in and out breathing, the constancy of change, but when we disrupt the cycles, we invite danger and disaster. How I long for the sting of a bee.
