ABC Wednesday ~ Letter “D”

Letter “D”

**

ABC pictures
Downed tree * Deer * derrières * me a “D”

Tree - Straightening When Blown Over Summer or winter storms often blow over otherwise healthy trees. Here is a review of the basics of righting trees that lean or have fallen.
** The birdhouse our youngest Daughter got me is unscathed. The first task is to shovel out a space under the root ball so it can fall back into place when the tree is pulled upright. Even if you can’t see a void under the root ball, dig underneath to remove soil that was disturbed as the tree fell. If you see broken roots, clip them cleanly with pruners. Use very thick padding under the rope or chain you wrap around the trunk in order to pull on the tree.
We will be busy this weekend

Deer
derrières

These are not the best of pictures, but one must consider the kind of camera it is and the intentions of that cameras use.
We were hoping to capture pictures of the coyotes that are in our area…

So sorry to see that your tree was downed by the heavy winds.My husband hit a deer while driving a few years ago.That was an experience that I will never forget.Needed to get our front windshield replaced.Thankfully that was the only damage and no one was hurt.
