Irony: Professional Tree Trimmers are Cutting Back a Great Many of Our Trees
Nine o'clock sharp the professional tree trimmers came to our small apartment complex to cut back all our trees before the very windy, rainy season that ends in huge piles of rotting leaves (and rats). The trees getting the fanciest manicure? The bottle brush... hurray! Birch is allergic to these and they are lined across an entire fence of our complex. So my man with all the respiratory and skin allergies may actually breathe easier this spring... maybe? Please? Now to summon the courage to ask our landlord if we can take out the rat-housing ivy right outside our front door (that also gives Birch a roaring sneeze fit every time it blooms).
