The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
Way back in March when my blog commitment had just begun, I came across a meme from Lucy an loose and leafy .
It was a simple idea. Pick a tree and follow it. So simple that I joined in. Each month on the 7th I looked at the tree and photographed her and told her story.
In that time the tree has flourished, been pruned and now lost its leaves. Ive seen it in the wet and the dry and looked at the lichens. I’ve measured it and treasured it.
But this week something else in the tree story happened.
It’s neighbouring tree has been removed.
Yes it’s gone.
It was very strange to see the space where the other tree used to be.
I searched my photos for an image where it could be seen in the background.
The other tree is gone.
Our tree is just fine now. Ironically one of the reasons I chose it was because it was one of the oldest in the street and I wondered whether it would be there much longer. It seems it could soon be gone after all.
I’ve really enjoyed this meme. It’s been so interesting to take notice of my tree.
