“At Home in the Blue Spruce”

Description from puppychick labratbecky: Right now the tree is anything but bluegreen. The day is cloudy and gray and the tree is shrouded in dust and mist from the melting snow on its branches. If you spend any time at all watching the tree, you will see all manner of little birds and critters diving in and out of its thick cloak of needles. We have thought about cutting it down because its main stem has died at the top but I would hate to rob these living things of their home.

    I’m like you Becky, I wouldn’t be able to cut it down either. When mu 1st husband and I built our house in the woods we had to cut trees. I remember when one fell this little flying squirrel came running out…terrified. I felt really bad.

    Fantastic pick. Love all the critters.

    Love your choices here, and your sentiments. All the animals make me smile. (I just finished feeding the birds and squirrels outside.) I have some bw jasper, which looks like tree branches to me. Needs the right companions, though. The sardonyx could be just the thing.

    Great combo, Becky. I love blue spruces. Just today I sat and watched all the birds coming and going through the trees. I can understand your not wanting to cut it down. Really nice pick!

    Becky, love your critters & this pick. Dont cut it down…they depend on it. I love blue spruce but they dont do too well in our climate. But we hv other evergreens & the critters will let their presence be known if you try to disturb them during their winter/spring respite. ;-)
