We finally have a bit of snow. It came on Thursday but it was light and sweepable. The volume had us all taking our shovels out to clean up the walkways.

I just noticed that this looks like a black and white photo but it's not. It's our backyard way back in 2008.

And this is the tree that we planted one day. I am posting this photo because it is no longer this size. Had we known then what we know now, we would have planted it farther to the end of the backyard. We do have a lot of space.

This is how big it is now - 8 years later...

Here's the trunk. I love trees but feel that this is too close to the house and it drops volumes of needles that have to be cleared away.

On a sad note, we lost our little Digit earlier this year.

She had a good life and was 19. Her sister is still with us and has become so needy for affection.

Here's Pixel and me in 2008. She now gets clipped about twice a year because her fur gets so matted.

  1. I almost could have written this post, Dolores. I have a tree like yours, once small enough to decorate without a ladder. Now, about 25 years later it's too big to decorate even with a ladder. Also, I know your sadness of bidding farewell to a beloved kitty. Nineteen years of love and pet joy, a blessing.
