The Lost Trees

Here's what happens to the beautiful trees
in our area when a long-term drought is
followed by buckets and buckets of rain.
The trees start dying from the inside due
to lack of water. Then the heavy rains make
the trees so heavy, they just fall over.

Luckily this tree went over backwards and
not onto the street in front of it. 

 Sad to see them go, but new ones will
take their place...
Life Goes On

Thanks for dropping by!


  1. I guess that is the way we need to look at the drought - life goes on!

  2. It makes me so sad to see these big trees fall. Texas has few enough of the giants as it is. :-(

  3. Good to hear from you, I was worried. So sad to see such a mature tree die, but you are right, life goes on. Great photos though.

  4. It's scary and sad when big trees go.

  5. That is sad, but if a tree died, I would actually prefer for it to happen naturally. Far too many trees are being cut down... :(

  6. Rivercrest Cottage,
    Sometimes, Mother Nature can be very h a r s h!!!
    "Mr. Ed" and I lost a tree years ago to lightening.
    The uniqueness of this tree, was that our cul~de~sac was shaped to leave this tree. . .thus the name Crooked Creek to our street. We have tried to replaced the tree, but our attempts have failed each time. It isn't "meant to be".
    Luckily our tree caused no damage to anyone or other homes, but it is sadly missed by all within our block!!!
    Poems are made by fools like me. . .
    but only God can make a tree. . .

  7. thanks for letting me know you were o.k,, hope all is getting better. Sending you good vibrations.

  8. Oh no!
    I missed this post.
    Poor tree.
    How very sad.
