The Dead Tree

“Where are my leaves? Am I dead? Is this the way to heaven?”
“God has cared for these trees, saved them from drought, disease, avalanches, 
and a thousand tempests and floods. But he cannot save them from fools.”
 ~ John Muir ~

    i miss visiting your site!

  2. about web design says:

    Stop watering it, trim back the dead branches, and wait. If it doesn't come back, return it and get a new tree.Its possible that you may have a root problem causing it to die.

    This is a very philosophical post. The photo is very symbolic and the quotation is very thought provoking. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.

  8. Poor tree! Why doesn't anyone care for it!

  9. Dead tree trunks reaching up into the sky like that are incredibly attractive. You have done a good job of showing this.
