My condo

Over my first year living here, one of the things that I loved was that the tree outside my window grew to the point that not only did it do a great job of blocking my view of the building opposite, but the branches poured over my balcony, meaning that it had become completely taken-over by green leaves. How often have I said that the worst thing about living in a condo is the lack of nature? But yet here I was with a leafy green balcony. So imagine my devastation when one morning they chopped-off all the branches of this tree, leaving it as little more than a stump.
