Raucus Indignation sent this in a few weeks ago and I had planned to post it on Tree Tuesday, but I’ve now decided that this submission is about more than just the tree so I’m posting it today instead. I’ll let Raucus explain:
I have many old apple trees around my home. The property is on an old orchard. This one didn’t survive the winter. It will be replaced by another apple or maybe a hazelnut in honour of Caine. I’ll send photos of the new trees once they’re planted.
I’m sorry to hear about the lost apple tree, but I think that planting a new one is the perfect way to remember a friend who loved trees and the birds that make them home. I look forward to seeing the photos of the new tree once it’s planted. Thanks so much for sharing, Raucus.
