That's my favorite back yard ash, now leafless. We've had a spectacular week weather-wise -- foggy, frosty mornings giving way to clear, sunny skies and warm temperatures. You can't walk anywhere without leaves crunching underfoot.
Thanks for the comments yesterday -- and for making me think. This is why I love blogging and why I continue to blog, even though it's sometimes hard, and I sometimes have doubts -- my feelings run the gamut from forthright and funny (though maybe I'm only amusing myself) to intimidated and shy to presumptuous and sanctimonious to over-exposed to wondering if I'm banging my head against the wall just to see if it makes a sound. Oh, there's more -- so much more I want to say, but did you see that sky? Yeah, and Mack is coming today!! I haven't seen him in a month -- since the day he started walking!
