Our backyard tree. It has decided to change leaf colour from the outside in. Remains green inside. Like the dark/grey roots coming in on my head except the opposite.
This tree looked near dying nine years back after my husband dug its big hole and stuck it in. He always felt he hadn’t done it right and watched it carefully after that. The next winter little animals started devouring its bark.
We covered it with plastic and netting.
It is a symbol of strength and beauty. To which we all aspire, I guess.
