I hope the Mayor saw this
We had 8 of these beauties
in the little open space at the end of our street . There's a big climbing frame in the middle that the neighbourhood children love and , when it's hot in the summer , everyone hauls chairs outside to drink tea and chat .
Now we have 8 of these
and we're all stunned . They were top-heavy apparently .....? But aren't all trees ?
The children spontaneously pinned protest notes on all the stumps . After heavy rain melted them , one young lad came back and carefully removed all the drawing pins and took them home .
Tomorrow is the annual Flower Market in town , wholeheartedly promoted by the Town Hall .
