What Happened To My Squirrel Tree?

Yippee! I'm going to the park. I love going to the park....I just run in circles and play with the squirrels. My mom calls my running zooming, and the squirrels really don't play they just scamper up their squirrel tree and hide. Today is going to be great fun...I haven't been to the park for three days because of the horrible stormy weather we've been having...I can hardly wait to get there.
Oh no! What has happened? I don't like what I'm seeing.
Look what has happened to my beautiful squirrel tree.
I guess all the rain and strong winds were just too much for this wonderful old tree. My mom told me she has lived in this neighborhood since she was a teenager and she said this tree along with several other trees in the park are over 50 years old. I think we were pretty lucky that only one tree fell, there are lots of branches and limbs on the ground and the ground is very mushy. I know work crews will be out tomorrow to clean this all up and get things back to normal.
I'm sad...not only is my squirrel tree gone, but I don't see any of my little friends. I hope they are alright and found another nice tree in the park to live in.
That' my dad....don't fall in that giant hole. I have to keep an eye on my parents ~ I sure don't want anything to happen to them. Doesn't he look tiny next to the tree?

Well, I think I'll do a quick zoom...maybe I'll see my friends and then I'm heading for home. I'll be back tomorrow... to see how things are doing and I'll let you know when I see my friends. Lily

Good Evening Linda,
I'm glad that it was just the tree that fell on the ground. "PRAISE GOD" it didn't fall on your or anyone's house. I have been seeing about all the bad weather yall were having. It has been a warm and windy day here. It did make it up to 70 degrees once today. I have even turned my A/C on. LOL. For the last couple of weeks I have been freezing. Today I was burning up. I guess I'm having a Power Surge. LOL. I hate going to Wal-Mart's anymore. Take care my friend and have a great evening. May God Bless You and Yours.

Hugs,
Karen H.

Hi Linda (and Lily),
So glad that tree didn't fall on anyone, but poor tree. We've got a huge pine tree in the front of our house & I've worried about it during the storms.

Lily, I'll bet all your squirrel friends are okay, just think how they just jump onto the big electrical poles, etc. Bet you see them soon!

Cute blog, I'm going to read about the heart rocks next...

So sad to see an old tree come down like that! Hope you are all safe! Love, Esther

Pen Pen said...

Poor Lily! I'm sure you will find another squirrel tree. Those squirrels have got to go somewhere!

Charity Grace said...

It's always sad when old trees go down. Here we have beautiful ancient live oaks--unfortunately none at my house though! After living in a treeless dessert for many years, I really love living someplace green with trees.

BTW, thanks for stopping by my blog!

Michelle said...

Poor Lily,

So sorry to see your squirrel tree down. Don't dispair..those little gardeners with fur coats will come back :)

Andi said...

Lily, I hope all your little squirrel friends are safe and have found nice trees to stay in. I'm sure your Mom and Dad will find a park with more trees and squirrels so you can do some serious zooming.

Rosie's Whimsy said...

Oh my, that was a big tree that came down. I am a tree hugger and it always makes me sad to see that kind of damage. Another will sprout up to take it's place I am sure. That is the magic of the circle of life :-)

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Hi Linda, Hope you and yours are staying safe. It took me a minute to realize your pup was writing that post and then I laughed. So cute!

Lib said...

Hi,
Sorry to see the tree uprooted.
Did you find your little friends?I sure hope so.

Jackie said...

My goodness, it looks as if you had one heck of a wind. So glad that no one was hurt. Have a wonderful evening.

bj said...

Oh, my...I always hate to see a pretty tree downed like this one.
We haven't had rain out here in West Texas for awhile and sure could use some.
Take care!

Oh, ya know, when I was little, we always had pretend tea..then when my daughter came along, we started with the Real Thing. Now, the granddaughters love it, too. We go to a tea room here in town about every 4 or 5 months and, oh, the smaller one that's 5, sure likes that!!

Kari & Kijsa said...

Ooh- we hate to see a beautiful old tree fall like that. We know a few carpenters who love to take away fallen trees, and season the wood for their future projects. Love that- a sense that the tree lives on through the craftsman's hands! Have a safe and wonderful day!

blessings,
kari & kijsa

nannykim said...

It alwasys amazes me how big a tree is when it is on the ground!! ;-) Glad you were all able to get out and about! It is supposed to be 75 here today--I just can not believe this weird weather!!!!!

Penny @ Lavender Hill Studio said...

Hi Linda,
What a shame that beautiful big tree fell! This weather is crazy lately! Stay safe..

Brenda said...

Awww poor baby. He will have to find another tree.

Cottage Contessa said...

Wow, that's a big tree to go over! Luckily it didn't hit someone or something. I hope the wild weather settles down for you now! Take care sweetie.

I hate to see the trees so damaged by the storms.. We drove to Norman the other day and it looked like a tornado had gone through there.. Bad ice storm... But your pictures were great... You ladies and your camera's you are so talented.. I have got to start putting some pics on my blog...

hugs and blessings...

Tammy said...

Hello...I followed a link from Karen H's blog. I enjoyed reading through some of your entries and will definately try the Ribbon Sandwich recipe when I have a tea one day for my friends.

We've had a lot of rain here in Ohio today. I hope the tree's hold up in this squishy ground!

Just let me know if you would like to visit me (send me an email) and I'll send you an invite to my blog.

Donna said...

What a sweet post! Poor Lily. I feel so bad the tree came down. I'm always sad when a tree comes down.
Hugs,

Oh, it always makes me so sad when I see old trees that have fallen. It's like a part of history goes with them.

Wow...the rains sure did wreak havoc didn't it?
Thank goodness no one was hurt by the fallen tree...

Hi, Linda. I was visiting Susan at Farmgirl Fare today, and she has posted about her heart stones. Thought you might want to take a look at them. Her address is foodiefarmgirl.blogspot.com, if you are interested, or you can just follow her link on my sidebar.

Nan said...

Awwwwwwwwwwww. Too bad about the squirrel house (tree). Those winds can really be destructive.

I'm so glad that the tree didn't fall on anyone, but how sad that it is gone. :0( It looks like it was a really beautiful tree!

Hi Linda,
Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment on my blog. I just love meeting other bloggers.
AWE !!!! Poor Lily lost her squirrel tree. It's sad to see a big old tree go down like that. We have many very old trees around our home and with them come lots od squirrels. Our dog Heidi spends hours waiting for the squirrels to come into the yard so that she can chase them back out.
P.S. Love your heart stones.
