Farewell Walter


IMG_3616Alas, Walter the Weeping Norwegian Pine didn’t make it.

Of all the trees we’ve had planted this is the only one to have well and truly died.

The landscaper thinks the root ball may have become separated from the trunk when he was planted.

Poor Walter.

Walter will be replaced in another month or so, as soon as the tree stock arrives, though I’m not sure it will be another weeping pine.  I hope so.  They are such quirky trees.

Clarence, his buddy the Chanticleer pear is doing just fine.  He’s put out nice green leaves, and is swaying in the breeze as I type.
