Daily Diversion #133: The Last Blooming

We are moving in a couple of weeks. Next year, my window tree will bloom for someone else. Nothing is permanent, but I will never forget my beautiful friend.

    • I cannot tell! They are just outside our window, but remain slightly out of reach. I never smell them when the window is open…I love this tree and will certainly miss it when we move.

  1. I know this feeling. I helped save a Thuja cedar in Seattle. The idiots before me had put a boxed planter around the thing and it was rotting the trunk. I excavated that lovely gigantic tree. That house got foreclosed on. Hope no new idiots moved in to destroy the old giant.

    • Oh, poor tree! At least you were able to save it. I love this tree, and will miss it when we move. I am sure to form attachments to things at the new place; only time will tell.
