All of you are familiar with my favorite tree, I'm sure. It's a Cassia tree that sits outside my kitchen window and is the landing pad for many kinds of birds and butterflies. My kitchen window posts are all from that tree. We enjoy seeing them all and the birds enjoy looking in the window to see what the humans are up to.
We had a huge storm Sunday night and my favorite tree was listing badly from a down-burst. We knew if we lost that tree, we would lose all our visitors, so Craig came up with an idea (he's the idea man) and off we went to Lowe's on Monday morning.
He used a 3' galvanized 1/2' pipe and water- jetted it in the ground on a 45degree angle, tied a rope around the tree and pulled the tree back up into position. The tree is being held in that position by ropes to the pipe.
Our feathered friends are back, the roots will get a chance to re-attach themselves to the soil, and I will be happy once again. Thank you, Craig.
My Cassia Tree, in Sept-Oct it is filled with wonderful yellow flowers that look like butterflies. The Sulpher butterflies larval on it.
