Trees & Books

We've had a lot of crazy storms this Summer. On a recent walk, we documented the after effects of a storm that ripped through our neighborhood downing trees right and left. Above is the little tree just outside our back gate.
This was one of four massive trees that were knocked down on the Belair Swim & Racquet property.
That's a lot of roots!
Amazingly, this tiny statue (in our neighbor's yard) survived the storm. Rock likes to pretend that these figurines are Frog and Toad. And they are playing Settlers of Catan.
The final destination of our walk was the library. Rock has been reading more and more so he loves to pick out his own books. It wasn't until later that I thought of how we use fallen trees to make paper for things like books. Hmmmm...
