A mix of photography, recipes, personal thoughts, faith, and lots of family stuff, but not necessarily in that order.

My favorite winter scene....Gone

This row of pine trees juts off to the west off County 22 just about 1/2 mile from my home.
It is most beautiful in the winter when the pine branches are flocked with fresh snow
(I know I must have taken a winter photo but I just couldn't find any)   :(
This row of pines used to come up to the road
until a few months ago....
Now, most of them have been cleared away
They bowled them down and the trees were soon a hugh heap of mulch
Soooooo many beautiful pine trees, demolished!
I'm not really a "Tree hugger" but this used to be my favorite winter scene. 

 It is soon to be a grocery store, I do like Hy-vee, but I'd rather look at the pines, sigh!


  1. What a total bummer. I'm sorry to see them go, as well. It's always sad when beautiful, untouched earth gets ruined by the hands of Big Money. sometimes i really wonder how worth it it truly is...

  2. I wonder how bad we need another big grocery store in this town.

  3. I feel the same way every time I see trees removed in the name of progress.

  4. It'sd a shame especially when they looked so healthy!

  5. Seeing trees cut down always makes me sad too:(
