Thank you all for such an emotional outpouring of support for the concern over our severely pruned tree out front. It’s nice that you care. I just thought you’d like to know — perhaps it will make your day better and you can live on without anguish — that the Tim Burton tree lives. The very next day after I lamented that it was near death, it sprung to life, spurred by this ridiculous California heat wave!

I feel better.
