We will rebuild! A few trees along with some bird houses fell down during the worst wind of Hurricane Irene. We began this morning painting these beautiful new bird houses and feeding stations. The little ones then turned their focus to the washed out fairy houses as Geir and I assessed and did a swoop of the yard. My heart felt heavy. After a while, we took a break and went for a ride to purchase a chain saw and a wood chipper and to grab a bite to eat.
Sadly, our yard lost its forest and now looks like a jungle. I will feel much better after we plant some pine trees in honor of the trees that we lost and fall in love all over again. Our work is all cut out for us and in the end we will have good fire wood for the winter and plenty of much needed mulch for our garden beds.
We have a lot more to do and we are very thankful that we are safe and can make things better and ah,....I can add woodcutter to my resume now.
Be well, Nicole
