Yesterday, I was quite upset. They are chopping down my poplars. This is public ground. The trees are sort of protected by law, unless they are regarded to be a danger to people walking by. Just as it is in the USA, also in Germany someone has to be responsible for whatever happens. In Turkey, they would laugh and say, "then don't walk near trees in a storm and look up, stupid!" -- In Germany, this isn't so. Everyone is afraid to be taken to court.
I'm so sad about the loss of these trees very close to our flat, and I'm afraid they will spoil the view from my kitchen window completely. This row of trees has been protecting our place from northern winds, nobody cares about our Feng Shui. Also the wild cherry tree which blossoms so nicely in spring has been badly damaged by the falling logs.
And the end of Eli Stone was stolen. We are so disappointed! I wrote mails to the companies.
But: Today I saw a group of cranes heading east. About 20 of these beautiful birds, flying no higher than 150 ft, sending out their melodic calls. I saw them as a prophecy of good things to come. Here's a video of cranes in East Germany.
