Skies opening up

Someone further down the alley had two large trees chopped down. Oh, what a difference! They skies have opened up and I see buildings and clouds and really it is a huge difference.
It had me looking at the weed tree close to me. It is a weed tree as it sits mainly outside the gate and the occupant said it wasn’t hers. The city said unless it is growing in the middle of the alley it isn’t theirs either. For several hundred dollars I had one of the three branches of this weed tree cut off. Maybe I can save up for another branch to be removed.
Yes, there are those who love trees. Well in tight spaces, where trees do touch houses, orphan bastard trees that no one wants to claim or maintain are a nuisance. Trees need to be maintained.
