Finally, a peak under the foliage…

Now that the needles have fallen off the branches of my larches, I took the opportunity to remove any wire that was digging in too deep. This is always a tricky task because wire removed too soon just means fresh wire in a few months. So some scarring is almost obligatory for a larch branch to set.

All too soon the trees will be going away for the early part of the winter. I'll miss the hands-on work pretty quickly.
