Sunday/ the tree is gone

I had the removal of one of the three big trees in my back yard scheduled for this past Friday, and it went ahead even though I was traveling.  The arborist that took the tree out stopped by today (just to say he planted a sign out on the sidewalk to advertise his business).   Seattle City Light had to take the power line coming into the house by the corner down for the day, and it took them until 12 noon on Friday to get here – but after that everything went well.   (Yes, I don’t like to take out trees, but this one has been making trouble for me for a number of years by giving squirrels access to the roof, dumping pine needles into the gutter, and it’s in the way of a new fence that has to go in right about where it stands).

This is all that remains of the Douglas Fir tree (also called an Oregon Pine) at the northwest corner of my house. The wood will still be hauled away, of course.

And here’s a hairy worm on the garage wall, now painted a chocolate brown color (previously green, same as the house) with white trim.
