Ash tree breaks through metal gate with peeling paint // remages

Little tree breaks metal gate

No Weak Links in the Chain…I hope!

Looking at each silvery link, checking each one, I think, there must not be a weak one among you!  The thing is…the links of this particular chain uphold the hammock in which my daughter loves to swing!  The two trees, forever too far apart for the hammock ropes […]
