Naked Trees~~ don't look Ethel!

Naked you say, yep, naked! Once full and voluptuous, overhanging grand branches of green leaves swaying in the southern breezes, now ............naked stark branches reach for the sky, screaming..........Don't look Ethel !

 This was the day..........the tree trimmers came to our house, after many
years of growth and more overgrowth, the enormous pin-oak trees
in our front yard needed a "hair-cut" if you will, and the larger than life, struck by lightening several times, walnut tree in the back yard just had to come down.
The fierce storms, winds and bitter cold winters we have had over many
years had left that poor walnut tree worn and broken. It's large limbs kept
crashing onto the house and would soon enough rip a hole thru the roof, into
our two daughter's shared room. 

But Hope does spring eternal and these trees will sprout new leaves again,
2 families got several loads of fire wood free for the winter
and I got a huge pile of mulch for the spring garden season.
My kiddos had fun counting the rings on those trees and climbing the big logs.

Silly girls had some fun~ that was the tree that almost fell right into
their bedroom after lightning hit it and several windy days

We had a log with pants(or shorts), sorta funny looking thing, with a
"big butt" my youngest said.

 And our surprise log~~

Call it what you will (we thought of a few)
Yin and Yang
Love and Laughter
2 hearts intertwined
tree amoebas
alien eyeballs stuck in a tree forever
Lightning strikes
Evil Twins
A pregnant tree (with alien babies of course)

What do you think?
