This is the “branchy tree,” so named by Olivia, 2 1/2 years.  It is a very old and dying hackberry, a true “farm tree.”  This photo was taken on Halloween 2009.  Today, not an hour ago, it was cut down.  I am always sad to see a tree cut, even if it is dead.  I have asked for some stumps.  I wonder how long it will take for her to notice.  When we take our walks to the mailbox, she is usually running full tilt by the time we are passing this spot.
