It is a year today since the blackwood tree was cut down.
Yesterday Stephen used his Father's Day present chainsaw for the first time to cut up the pussy willow tree that was radically trimmed
 when next doors extended their garage.

These are the violets that I saved by popping them into a nearby flower pot in a panic last year 
when the tree lopper people were walking all over the yard. 
They survived both in the pot and in the garden where they had been squashed.

And no matter what else is happening in the world it seems,
 if it's September the magnolia will be in flower.
