End of the Lone Tree

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 14 November 2019 in Plant & Nature.

I have driven by this tree often and taken pictures of it in every season. It is located in the middle of a field on a farm. I always saw it as a source of strength standing out there all by itself. This spring it didn't look too good. The leaves were very sparse and many of the branches were bare. By summer, all of the leaves had fallen off the tree. I didn't want to accept the reality that the tree was dead. It was a beautiful tree.

Aw!! Sad to see you go..
But time erases many trees..and may be you are destined to fall by yourself.
One consolation..
it is not falling to a man's axe !!
