|We had joy we had fun...|
|Our dear friend, Cielo, the old pecan tree|
We have 2 giant pecan trees, Respiro and Cielo, one healthy (Respiro) and one sickly (Cielo). 18 months ago our tree trimmer, Lovett, told us the leaning pecan tree was dying...gentle oozing was taking place at the root. My husband thought he would possible heal it but the problem was bigger than it was visually. We were in bit of denial about Cielo's illness (still produced pecans and beautiful shade) and the expense to remove it. Every windy and stormy night I'd pray "Cielo please don't topple", toppling would mean: uprooting buried water lines, falling on the neighbors house, possibly hurting someone, ruining a garden...just chaos. We are sad to see Cielo cut down.
My Dearest Cielo,
