Working with this old technology has been challenging at times and none more so than this past summer. I’ve been using two old computers that were still compatible with the Palm software but this summer they both stopped working. Fortunately, with a lot of help from my wife Ariana I’ve been able to find a work around. How long it will work is anyone’s guess but I’m back for now.

Stump 5-57 PM

The roots of this tree had caused the sidewalk to heave quite a bit. Still, sorry to see such a large tree removed.

This past fall the city has been busy trimming and removing trees in my neighborhood. I was able to draw a few of the stumps, not as many as I would have liked, but…..

On the left you can see the weeds coming in nicely.

Last year I posted a drawing of a silver maple next door that had been cut down to the trunk. I assumed then that it would soon be removed but a year later it’s still there. As you can see it’s holding on and has grown some new branches.

We planted a new tree in our small backyard, an American Hornbeam. I hope it does better than the Hydrangea.

My drawings of plants are usually weeds from my yard but this one is not a weed. I know this because it was at the Boehner Botanical Gardens and it had a sign that said Canna.

I could smell this pineapple as I walked past it this morning, so I knew it was time to eat it.

Last year I posted a drawing of dead daffodils in a vase but I didn’t post drawings of the living daffodils from that year. Here they are.
