End of the Tree

The tree in front of our house is gone. Seen in Zurich, 08.02.2017.

Yesterday morning, a tree in front of our house has virtually been dismantled. Somehow, one is wondering if Zurich Garden Department (Grünstadt Zürich) would be able to put together a tree using the same technique.

Seen and imagined on Badenerstrasse, Zurich on 08.02.2017.
