When we did purchase our lot to build the home we live in, there were several trees we wanted to preserve. Just like to show you what a difference time and space can mean for a solitary tree. This is Our Oak Tree after 22 Years...
Strong, solitary and HAPPY. It is a semi-evergreen variety and gives us pleasure year round.
Our Oak Tree's humble beginnings... Home not yet finished and the pond got dug already.
This in order to fill in other areas where it was too wet, taking soil from the pond digging.
You see all those black drain pipes? Those are dug in, for draining into the pond area.
To the left, the little tree with the green leaves on, is Our Oak Tree. Just a baby then.
All others around it have been cut down to give it space to grow up solitary.
To the left it is, ten years later and heavy from snow and ice... but growing!
YES, we can have winter time, if only for a day.
Reaching for the skies, to the left again. The willow opposite the pond died meanwhile...
Five years ago a photo taken from our balcony and Our Oak Tree looks majestic.
Still reaching up to the heavens it is HUGE and HAPPY.
What a joy it is to witness a hardwood tree grow up!
Lovely to sit on the bench, beneath Our Oak Tree.
Do you have any similar experiences with a favorite tree in your garden?
