Raising Crane: On Arbor Day

Bull Crane

“You people set aside a day just to celebrate trees?”

Depressed wishbone

Absolutely! See what happens when trees don’t get hugged?

Red Cow blues

“Well, we all do the best we can with what we got to work with.”

Stand-out trees

Well-hugged trees are standout creatures, as you can plainly see.

Crane wrong

  1. That was cute Uncle Tree and Happy Arbor Day back at you. I like that Black Angus and the brown cow (maybe a Jersey milk cow?) and those broken trees look like some of the places at Council Point Park. Trees split in half, branches all over. The winds in March took its toll on some already brittle trees.

  2. Thank you kindly, Linda! πŸ™‚ Happy Arbor Day to you!
    Cows always look so grumpy, don’t they? And that poor tree…
    it’s like he deflated, or someone let his air out, as he was still intact at the waist.

    Have a great Friday! Cheerz, UT

  3. I love it, UT! We all need huggies…yes? We had a huge old tree come down last fall during Hurricane Irma. It had about 10 percent of it’s roots still intact in the ground and the rest of it was floating in the pond. We came to love the tree in that position! The tree flourished…all the leaves came back and it became a new vacation spot for the turtles who would climb up on the tree to sun themselves!
    Sadly, while I was away for a couple days the condo management had that beauty removed 😟
    I miss her, as I am certain the turtles do too! And I won’t even tell you the exorbitant price they charged to kill her.
    A very sad day.
    But here’s to all the wonderful trees who give us life!
    Sending many blessings your way πŸ’œ

  4. Yes, we do, Lorrie. πŸ™‚ Hugz on the house for Arbor Day!
    Sorry to hear about your friend, and those poor turtles, too.
    Darn managers! Shame, shame, shame on them. They should replace it, at the least.

    Blessings coming on the wind to all ya all! ❀ Peace and luvz, UT

  5. Cardboard cutouts? πŸ™‚ LoL A superimposition it is not. No, sir.
    These here are “real” cows. I know some city folk have never seen a real live cow,
    so I thought I’d share some of the next best thing.

    Glad you liked this post. Thank you! Happy Tree Day!

  6. They do look grumpy … when you pass them on the highway they look grumpy and bored. That poor tree did look deflated. Someone please put it out of its misery!

    P.S. – Speaking of trees, I wrote a post a few years back about a guy who built his kids a large tree house. I watched him building it when I passed by the house and this is a picture of it when it was finished. The kids use a pulley system to get their food and/or supplies for the day – I’ve seen their parents sending things up to them.

    Enjoy your weekend Uncle Tree.

  7. I could dig a tree/man cave like that, Linda. πŸ™‚ It is cool! Lucky kids!

    Hope your weekend treats you right. It’s sunny and 79 here currently. Finally…

  8. Isn’t that cool? I don’t pass down that street all the time since they finished with the construction the next street over from me, but I drove past it when I took the car for a spin yesterday morning and thought I must send it to you – it is huge and I watched him building it over the course of the previous Summer. They are lucky kids.

    That’s great weather – we have a coolish weekend and 68 Monday, 78 Tuesday, then rain to make it cooler again … fits and starts!

  9. LoL, Linda! πŸ™‚ I’m sorry, but that’s hilarious!
    It had to be some kind of sight to see in person.
    Good find! Thank you so much for sharing it here on this post!

  10. Yup, I knew you’d get a kick out of this Uncle Tree. I had a giggle as well and had to share it on your Arbor Day post. That’s as bad as bubble gum stuck in your hair.
