my 3 coast live oaks got hair cuts today while i was watching the space shuttle endeavor fly right over our school yard!
they were thinned and the canopy raised up so now i can actually see the view out back. oh i missed seeing those other shaggy trees and the hills beyond!
these trees support a lot of wildlife and i love having them. i'm glad whoever built moss cottage back in 1925 let them stay put up here on their grassy knoll.
in a few weeks when the mighty santa ana winds start whipping through the canyons and passes like they like to do every autumn, i'll be ready.
