What strikes me about the tree when I look at it is that it looks so sad or today being Halloween, a bit ghostly, with its drooping branches and the little nodding hook at the top. Soon I will need to move all the plants growing at its base to another location to allow our "Nootie" space to grow.
My husband put his "two cents worth" in when I mentioned what I was writing about. He thought the the leafless Walnut tree looked more ghostly with its annual pest of Fall Webworm carcasses hanging from the branches. You be the judge.
