Well it was a rough year for this little tree in my yard, and now mother nature decided to end its suffering.
We had a big storm last night and down she came. The last branch standing took just a few pushes and it came down too. Rotten at the base.
But the shoots we left this summer are still there and we shall see what becomes of them in the new year. And it’s right on the fence line between us and the neighbours. Hopefully they leave the little shoots alone. They have amazing soft fuzz still.
