The 2 photos are of the same tree which lives in my backyard. It is a horse chestnut which my cat Gray-Boy used to LOVE. I would marvel at how high he would go...walking out to the tippiest tips of the branches AND make it down in one piece! We did this every morning-me with coffee cup in hand, he like a kid at the playground. He'd start with the Pine tree and zoom all the way up the tree, then over to the raspberries where he would spring out at me and dodge the bees, he would then climb up and down the ladder leaning against the shed and finally his horse chestnut tree! He was a really happy cat and so much fun...that is until the car got him. When I look out my bedroom window I imagine I can still see him there.

Welcome to Permies, Shirleywoo, cute story and nice trees. Over years we have lost cats the same way, and it's always sad.

In the interests of pie, I went looking for a tree photo but we are sitting at -20 C at the moment so I thought I'd share a photo of my new Saskatoon trees that will one day become a fantastic Fedge.
