Tree, Lack of

The Plum Island equivalent of Motif #1 has got to be the 2 trees by the North Pool: one tall and skinny, one short and round. It took me by surprise last Wednesday when I saw that the taller one had fallen. The landscape looked so different, kind of like when a building gets torn down from a familiar city skyline.

Even though I noted its absence and took a picture to commemorate this change, I had no idea it was a big enough story to make the Boston Globe: Torn Asunder they called it.

The Daily News of Newburyport covered it too, of course.

It looked even more weird and dispirited on Friday in the rain.
