and no one is there, does it make a noise?
This one sure must have.
A few weeks ago while I was on a walk, I noticed this tree that is along side the path to the stream had "moved". As it turns out, the tree--a HUGE oak tree--had slid down the side of the embankment, roots and all. Because the roots are still in-tact, the tree is still alive and the buds have all come out. The tree is so big that Chris doesn't know how he will get rid of it. Right now, it's not in the way, although the embankment is a bit open and some of the ground has shifted. Further down the path, there is a dead tree that is leaning over the path. That tree will probably come down at some point--the only thing that is keeping it from falling are several smaller trees that are unwillingly supporting it.
