The Root Of The Problem Is The Roots

…autumnal colours are aglow in the valley…. IMG_4732   …but leaves aren’t the only thing falling…. …I was staring out the window admiring a deluge of swirling orange, yellow & brown leaves when I noticed traffic backing up outside the shop…. IMG_4759   …one of two “beautification” trees in the ‘hood came down in the same big equinoctial gust that the leaves were enjoying… …I missed getting a shot of it sprawled across the road because a customer (customers!…with their needs & wants…always getting in the way of “art”!) came in as I was rushing out with my camera… IMG_4760   …it would seem that planting trees in confined, concrete edged, tar-seal surrounded flower beds is not great for their root development…   IMG_4761   IMG_4762   …snap!

Not An Every Day Occurrence

…and on that note I may be away from here for a week…

…holed up in a seedy motel room with the other members of the jury…

…on the lam from friends of the bad guys…

…the ones whose friend we’re about to  send down….

…gulp.
