Fern Valley tree removal......and autumn
I went out to see what havoc the tree contractors were wreaking, and they weren't. They were doing a good job....minimal collateral damage. I couldn't help noticing how colorful the entrance was and how nicely balanced the visual elements were. It's been more than 50 years since the original plantings in Fern Valley; this can't be the result of design, but rather continual readjustment, serendipity, and possibly divine intervention.
