This is my scary, monstrous mesquite tree in my front yard.
That's just how big it is.
I have love/hate feelings for it.
It's a living thing. I love living things and the beauty of nature and all.
But sometimes, in weak moments, I fantasize chopping it down to nothing.
(And having a lifetime supply of mesquite firewood.)
In the Summer months, though, it shades my home and it MUST save us hundreds on our power bill, right?
And then, every Halloween I have a PLETHORA (no exaggeration ) of gnarly limbs and twigs to add to arrangements, door ways, table tops...
Please, don't buy any overpriced stems from the craft store this year.
Let me cut you some from my tree. There's plenty for ALL of us!
