Our leaning trees...

Although it does look pretty to see the trees all leaning together away from the water, this is not a good thing.

These lovely elms somehow managed to survive the devastating flood of 3 years ago, but because their roots were standing in water for over a year, they are now very loose and unstable.

The strong winds blowing off the lake are slowly and steadily blowing the trees over.

At this point, there seems to be little we can do to save them - except hope that their roots grow stronger and dig deeper with each passing year.

Happy Solstice, everyone! Let's be grateful to Gia for all her blessings...
