An Unexpected Start to Summer
I like to think of myself as an optimistic person, although not a Pollyanna. When our oak tree was struck by lightning a few years ago and then recently deemed too dangerous to remain, my husband and I were stunned. We love that tree! What good could possibly emerge from this situation?

The first good news is that I was not struck or fatally injured by the lightning, nor have any of the huge branches fallen on our house. More good news? My husband and I get to plant a new tree ... Not that the removal of our beloved tree won't cost a bundle and the new tree isn't expensive.
