The Broken Trellis

The Broken Trellis

On This Date: Photo taken 2/20/2016.

One year ago an overnight wind storm got our trellis. While we weren’t surprised to find it broken, we were surprised to find it so thoroughly broken. All three four-by-fours making its main frame proved to be rotten.

We miss it. I’m guessing we’ll build a new one in a few weeks.


Judging my my photographs, we’ve often had serious storms on February 20.

New Lens Note: On 2/20/2005 I took my first digital photograph with my 28-105 mm f/3.5-4.5 lens–of a squirrel eating at our bird feeder. I’d originally bought this Nikkor lens for my N90s after I’d broken that camera’s kit lens, and for some time it was my most-used lens.

Number of pix taken on various February 20ths: 130
Year of oldest photo: 2005
