New Year, new shoots

A fruit tree  in the field next door was somewhat mercilessly ‘pruned’ (massacred!) a few months ago.  One could feel the pain.  But, encouraged by the mild weather in the second half of 2014, the tree has valiantly fought back and has produced a prolific number of sturdy, burgeoning young shoots that, in a chaotic way, form an attractive spectacle.   This picture is really an act of celebration!

  1. It’s good to be able to see it that way! Some workers did the same to Rhododendrons at the edge of a driveway here, and I was amazed at how quickly the new shoots began to cover the horror.

    Go for it! … I am wishing the tree well 🌳🌳🌳
