A pack of ravenous Vermicious Knids (ok, just some hungry bunnies) attacked & stripped my young Maple of her clothing… she lived through the Summer… but didn't survive (sniff, sniff…).
We could get angry at the bunnies, but it wasn't their fault that we had a nasty Spring, or that a sweet tasty young Maple was just sitting there waiting to have her syrupy sap lapped up...
Last weekend, Jeff & I decided to put our sweet young Maple to rest… so we cut her down, dug her up, and placed her remains in the woods… a lovely resting place for our sweet young Maple… :(…
Then it was off to Gertens, to get Maple II, this time we are going to make sure she's protected…
|We got Maple II loaded into the van, my view|
of Jeff as he's driving...
|The base of the tree is at the back door of the van.|
|I'm sharing the front seat with the top of the tree...|
|She's home!! Firmly planted & with a protective|
covering on her base… :)
|In case you thought I was kidding about the|
Vermicious Knids, there's one eyeing Maple II,
obviously sulking because he can't get to her
sweet sap… tough luck Mr Bunny!!
