This used to be the view from my kitchen window. I loved waking up early and seeing the dramatic skeleton finger-like branches reach up to the breaking dawn. (that was back when I was crazy/smart and woke up at 5:00 for an exercise class) Even though my neighbor's tree is dead, and a hazard in the wind (as later proven, when it broke and fell into my yard) I loved this tree. I'm glad I captured this picture of it while it was still standing. What's the view from your kitchen window like?
