CRASH...

My poor fig tree. It just fell over. My neighbor called me and told me. I never heard a sound from inside the house. And it is full of figs that are not even ripe enough for the birds.

no. deanna.
are you in the path of high winds?
is it the only one?
can you use the figs for dying?
just wondering.
I bet you loved that tree.
i am truly sorry. very sorry.

it has been very windy, cristina. looking at the base, i'm not sure how this tree survived at all. it appears to be all dried up. we have not had rain in weeks and there is a fire danger announced on a daily basis. we are also on water use restriction. i'll try using some of the figs for dyeing but there are hundreds on the tree.

Sorry Deanna for the loss of your fig tree. I feel sad for you because I love fig tree and put one in everywhere we moved too. We have a small one in our yard here. Yes it looks very dry on the root. It's nice to see your backyard though, thanks - the leaves might be good for dyeing. Try it and let me know - Hugs Nat

So sad. How many years do they take to become as beautiful as that?

Sad to lose a crop like that... glad it didn't land on anyone.

thank you all for your words. this tree is 22 years old, planted when i first moved into this house. i went out this morning and took a small shoot at the base of the tree that had a root attached and planted it in a pot. i will try to keep it going and then plant it in the ground. the rest of the tree will find its way back to the earth.

"back to the earth"
deanna, i hear peacefulness
in those words.
