A large chunk of the old Beech tree at the entrance to the Bellevue Park community gardens broke off, showing the necessity to take down the whole tree. Turns out it was rotten in the center to a height of about ten feet. The inside was filled with beautiful black dirt, probably the result of years of squirrel goop and nesting leaves. To some enterprising gardener, it presented the perfect opportunity for a stealth raid to plant some pansies before the stump planter was cut down. Hopefully the park people will leave the new gardening statement standing.
