Here she is with her new trim
Thursday, April 26, 2018
My office window looks out directly to the Big Tree, I can see all of her... well, all of the width of her. She reaches way higher toward the sky than my window allows. She looks a bit sparse, the trim has certainly changed her appearance. But she looks healthier than she has in a long time, and I'm sure once the buds turn into leaves she will fill out nicely.
Here is all that they took out of her yesterday. The truck came by about an hour ago to collect her branches.
Daisy has already adjusted to our early morning walks and she is patiently waiting for me while I get the photos that I wanted. But I'm pretty sure she's thinking "come on mom, we've got places to go and good smells to find".
I'm glad we went out early today, it was so peaceful. The wind has come this afternoon. It's a warm wind but we haven't yet had any rain so there's a lot of dust and dirt flying around. The little pond looked so peaceful with only a hint of snow left to melt. I love how the houses reflect off the water.
The geese are returning a little bit at a time. I haven't seen any flocks of them yet but I've been seeing several pairs. I would have thought it was still a bit cold to be swimming in those ponds but they seem very happy. During yesterday's walk they were on the grass close to the path and Daisy really wanted to make friends!
Today has been a more structured day. I went up to the gym for my Pilates mat class and after we did Melt. Afterwards I am so relaxed, I just love that feeling. I'm going to start a new habit of doing a bit of Melt in the mornings right after I wake up and then once again in the evenings shortly before I go to bed. I'm hoping it helps with some of my little aches and pains - it's also suppose to help restore better sleep. I'm all for that.
Have a lovely evening.
