This isn't eye candy in the traditional sense and it's not what I planned but it works. When I got home yesterday I found my daughter and my neighbor outside looking at this tree which fell moments before I arrived. It missed my house by just a few feet. If it had hit our house it would've been especially bad since we're expecting house guests next week.
There were wind advisories in my area yesterday and my neighbor saw the tree leaning when she got home. She called someone to try to take the tree down safely but it fell before he had a chance. There he is in the tree. He'll make the mess disappear by the time I get home today - I hope. Truly I'm just happy that it's in the yard rather than in my living room.
