The BEECH TREE.
I hate this tree in the Spring when it's leaves turn a depressing brown ...a brown that some delusional people like to refer to as "purple" to make the tree seem a little more exotic.
I hate this tree in the Summer when it's brown leaves turn to a dark green similar to that of lake scum.
I hate this tree in the Fall when it creates these seed thingys: E V E R Y W H E R E
What a wonderful joy of nature this tree is.
Today I spent nearly three hours straight cleaning up after the two enormous, ugly trees in my front yard. I filled two garbage cans and ten big plastic bags full of these stupid seed thingys.
...and as I cleaned and raked and mowed and scooped; the stupid little seed thingys kept bouncing off my head.
I can't wait until all of its never-pretty leaves fall off. I'm done with the dumb tree.
The ironic part here is that we just bought real furniture ...a dining room set complete with a big table, side board, bookcase, and eight really cool looking chairs. All wood. :) hee hee
My new dining room furniture was made from the "core of German beech trees". HA! I will now love my new furniture even more because we have helped to kill off some of these frustrating trees. :)
I had no idea what kind of trees these were until this afternoon when I finally whined to a neighbor. She said it was a birch tree, but when I googled the picture to post here I realized she meant beech trees. Little translation problem, but I'm pretty impressed she came up with birch at all.
:) Maybe I should order some more beech tree furniture. :)
