We were all very fond of the big maple tree in the backyard. The stump had...character.

I used to climb the tree, actually.

But that was long before it grew this high, and got sick.

Now it's gone...

...and only chips and memories remain.

So beautiful, so sad, so sorry for your loss.

I recently saw a picture of some of my family in our yard next to our own tree (which was similarly chopped down after a long life about 5 years ago). My grandfather was in the picture. Me about three. The tree about 8 inches in diameter.

Perhaps next Spring from the compost a seeding will grow?

So let those chips fall where they May.
