Two trees on our front lawn my hubby and son planted as saplings in 1968

Woebegone Full fifty years ago, late summer, we had planted you... two tiny, wispy saplings that would grow and grace our lawn. But mother nature came...lashed her tornado to undue your beauty with a monstrous hack that leaves us woebegone. Sandra M.

oh that is sad, Sandra. I lost 1/4 a tree to a storm. The tree still stands but minus that 1/4 part of her, she is never the same!!
