cottonwood queen
gathering her babies up
and tucking them in

We have some glorious cottonwood trees in our backyard.
It's a clump of trees... that I assume spread from one tree... and I love it.
We have fought to save our trees the whole time we have lived here... from nurturing those 
that weren't doing so well in the desert... to protecting ones that our neighbors have wanted us to take down ( and took us to court over).
 I hate to see trees cut down (unless absolutely necessary because of disease or such)... and I think our trees know it.
And are thriving now.
