Thank goodness trees are flexible. I'm astounded how supple they are when a hard wind blasts through their branches. They wouldn't last long in Iowa if they weren't able to give a little.
The twelve-spotted lady bugs have all passed, the risk of being conked on the head by a black walnut has significantly reduced and the gale force winds are a good reminder of how sturdy our house is.
