Trees

I love trees. They have a presence about them that calms me and stills my mind. Sadly we have to remove a few which are falling or threatening to fall on buildings on the farm.  One tree that happened to grow in the middle of a euphorbia candalabrum snapped a huge limb when we tried to remove a bougainvilla that had entwined itself into both the tree and the candalabra.  It was quite scary watching then take it down as the men had to climb onto the broken limb which was dangling right over our boundary wall on which we were trying to erect an electric fence.

Luckily all went well and we were able to save all three plants and just give them each a serious trim.
