And yet, this is what is happening all over the base. I'm no horticulturalist (which sounds like a fun job sometimes) so I may not be understanding exactly *why* we are cutting down seemingly thriving trees. AND....the above photo is what my backyard still looks like. Dear Hubby called and politely asked when they thought they might come finish or at least pick up what they had started and they said no. Gee, thanks. It's starting to remind me of Geo and the plight of the wreaths!
(I can't find a link that will take you directly to the explanation of the whole wreath story, but basically these people had a Christmas wreath up until right before Easter, when the Easter wreath went up.)
