Friday was my Tree’s fifth year outside. A celebratory event was to take place. But alas Mother Nature did leave over a foot of snow on top of it. So we decided to post pone the events one day. This wasn’t going to happen. The image below shows the branches of the butterfly tree that my Tree is underneath. And the massive amount of icy snow that is currently covering the area. So… event rain check please! Good news is event documentation has been discussed. Event date to be determined.

Apologies for the long delay in posting. I am working on a deadline (or a drop dead date as some would say) with time restrictions. Normally not a problem, but I’ve got something called a day job that can get a bit in the way. Even so I prevail and will conquer!
Since the last post where I shared my reaction to excitement I have begun working on a piano. I was given an upright piano to work on. Well it wasn’t given to me, it is in a studio location where I get to work (during specific times) on it. I happily would have taken any of the pianos and am still super excited about this project. It is coming out fantastically. Not exactly as I planned, for nothing does, but possibly better. I am using vintage music books (bought online), shredding the pages inside of them (which my mother cringed at the thought), and am applying them to the piano. Oh and I primed and painted the piano first. Why? The primer and paint were free, I hadn’t ordered the music books yet, and as a former piano painter said it is a good way to get to know your piano.
When it is done it will be on display in NYC (will share location information when I find out!) for the first two weeks of June. So if you can play piano come out and if you cannot play piano come out to take a look and listen!
Here are some pictures of my progress so far.
Last Saturday afternoon I went to check on my Tree. Was it time to ‘put it down’ or was it staying strong? I would of bet on the first choice if I did not know my Tree and it’s inevitable staying power. Smaller, but still MIGHTY!
My Tree has officially been outside for 3 years since February 21st! And it is holding up. The very bottom of the trunk is getting moist. I suspect this may be the first part to flatten. What do you think?
Still tilted. Still showing cement. Standing tall. A quick visit to my Tree shows it in it’s unnaturally natural suburban surroundings.
