Draw me a tree
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
, a distinguished aviator [
], wrote a marvelous tale in which the
asked a space-dweller to draw him a sheep.
This morning, just alongside Gamone, a helicopter was literally drawing felled trees out of the dense woods on the slopes above Pont-en-Royans, and depositing them on empty land in nearby Châtelus.

It was funny to see entire trees, foliage and all, suspended at the end of a cable, floating across the slopes. Thankfully, it was never a sheep.
