No matter how often I see the spectacle, I am always amazed at how beautiful the sun is on the sycamore’s bark. That’s meadow rue blooming down on the left. When We first looked at this house back in 1999, I was excited to see the huge sycamore in the back yard. I’ve always wanted one. We hope it outlives us, or at least our tenure here. Most of all, we don’t want to witness what it’s like to have a 90′ tall tree fall on your house…or the expense of having it taken away even if no houses are harmed.
