Don't know who they are,
but I am glad they came to visit me
and rest in
the old ugly
Sweet Gum tree
in my back yard
that "My Man" keeps threatening
to cut down.
Seeing as how it is
good for nothing.
And adds nothing.
Except those little pointy balls it drops
on his manicured lawn.
It just earned its stay of execution.
It serves as a place of fellowship for
My chatty little birdies,
Whose chirping and cheeping add rhythm to my day,
The ugly old Sweet Gum
with its pointy balls
snow pic from 1/15....it's the only one I had of sweet gum balls..
I was taking pictures of everything! :)
