The Buzzing Tree

This is an absolutely beautiful tree. A couple (well three, it was the first fall we had the middle child) years ago it was still in full leaf when all around had fallen and the leaves were a brilliant gold. Very Striking.

Anyway, underneath all those leaves right now are flowers, flowers which now are fading but were fresh and open last week. ANd full of bees. As you walked past the tree it was literally buzzing, the whole thing.


  1. As long as the branches don't reach out and grab you and hang you upside down, I think you'll be okay.

    I'm just saying...one has to watch out for such things.

  2. In a Hogwarts state of mind by chance?

    No Whomping willows here.

  3. "...I'm shakin' like a man in the buzzin' tree..."
