I posted early on about our old apple tree and how it is reaching the end of its life. We took down one large limb some time ago, so that it would not fall on the cottage, but there was still more to do. As I said before, I love the idea of apples at… Continue reading Apple Trees, Please!
We made our annual winter visit to the cottage a month early this year. We had a pile of snow last week and then warmer temperatures this weekend, so a perfect recipe to snowshoe in.

The dock was built around a maple tree that has three trunks. One of them was very rotten and moving. We were concerned it would come down during a… Continue reading Docking The Maple Tree
