Off with their heads

It was a nice day today (cold, but not raining), so I took the opportunity to finish pruning the grape and the peach. Then I got to work on the plum. Now this is a tree I've been tending to for a few years, careful to follow the instructions of pruning manuals. But every year, it grows more and more scraggly and blooms less and less. So I'm fed up with it. Today, I chopped off its head. Head and torso, and maybe the hips too.

Now the studio is much more exposed to the houses up the hill across the street. And that's how this entry is connected to the studio.
