My Back Yard Landscape Changed in One Moment


Two weeks ago today, this aged Water Oak just fell over in my backyard. Tallahassee had experienced 11″+ rain, the ground was saturated and the tree just laid down. If there was a perfect place in my yard to lay, this tree found it. I am going to miss this tree, its shade, its stature and character, it was the rope tree. It is hard to grasp, but it is true, the tree had its moment. So thank you for all the good moments, I mean that. Now if you look close, Mr. Bojangles, my little black and white cat is sitting on the tree keeping it real. By next Monday the tree should be gone and more moments will happen.
