The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
it seems that the natural world moves in very mysterious ways. Yesterday I posted about our one plum tree and my consideration that it should be axed.
I wasn’t sure it would ever fruit properly.
I was trying to be the big man and make a good decision.
I reached out to you guys to seek advice, support and recommendations.
So the blog community is more diverse than we thought. Word got out. There was a reaction. It didn’t take long.
Today there was a protest. The tree was occupied by a peaceful group of supporters.
They filled her branches and delivered their petition. It wasn’t an online one or a survey. Just a straightforward grass roots mass movement. A sit in or should that be a buzz in.
(I’ve also done some further reading and it says that plum trees start fruiting in three to six years. That could well mean that she’s only just started to fruit, I guess. )
Shall I give her another chance?
I think the bees are telling me I should.
