    Tree droppings are messy and another reason neighbor wants the tree down. She has a zen garden and a very large koi pond but she doesn't see the waxwings!

    There was another mulberry tree across the street. Those neighbors ate berries off the tree and made pies.

    I guess I don't understand this zeal for taking trees down. I watched a beautiful horse chestnut tree being taken down some years ago because people objected to the seeds (large round balls) that lay on the ground sometimes. They were said to be a danger to people walking.

    Of course if they're kept raked up, they're not a danger.... And then there's the undeniable fact that it takes a long long time to get a tree to the point where it's an established lovely shade tree, as this one was.

    Thank you, Agate! I get those spikey balls on my patio. I never knew which tree they came from as the trees are very tall.

    When you said spiky balls, my first thought was a liquidambar tree. We had one when I was growing up and I can tell you they are murder on bare feet! The trees are beautiful!

    There are horse chestnut trees near the library, here in Anacortes. My 2nd husband picked up one of the seeds, years ago and got it started, but when he put it outside to get some sun, the deer pruned the branches. That wasn't it, they also ate my pansies. lol

    Sycamore trees have somewhat spiky balls too.

    These are hard shells broken open in halves. They are murder on bare feet.

    I can hear my father, "ANN Louise, put your shoes on." Also, "turn out the light," and "sit up straight."
