Photo Of the Week: The Giving Tree
As long as we’re talking about trees, I figured it was about time to take a new photo of our giant cottonwood tree (you can see the first one here):
This tree is easily the tallest in the neighborhood. It gives us some great shade over our house in the mid-afternoon, which has been great as we’ve been roofing. We anticipate, however, it giving us a lot of extra work this autumn when it drops all of those leaves. Since the previous owner didn’t rake last year, I’ve already raked this tree’s leaves once this year, after the snow melted this past spring. So, we’re thinking of buying a push lawn sweeper instead. Anyone ever used one?
