Once the tree was down he began cutting all the branches in to smaller pieces and bundling them together. I began looking out the window and scheming. I do love branches! And these were so wonderful.
After he finished his work, he showered and left. Birdy and I ran in to the back yard and began to figure out what we could do with all the wonderful branches. This is what we came up with.
here is another view
When I was a little girl one of my best friends and I spent afternoon after afternoon building forts out of branches and what ever else we could find, so this really brought back so memories.
We started by taking about 3 or 4 large ones and resting them against each other. Then we leaned smaller ones against the bigger ones. Birdy thinks we need more leaves so we can stay out there in the rain, but I'm not sure we can find trees with leaves that big. I think it turned out so cute. I'm not sure what my husband will say when he gets home, but I think it is just as sound as the one we saw on Man Woman Wild a few weeks ago!
