Last year our cherry tree died...in a matter of days. It seemed fine, then suddenly it took ill, and then it was all over and there was absolutely nothing we could do about it. Then there was our apple tree. It never produced many apples, and seemed to shrink rather than to grow, well, it finally bit the dust also.
So, today we went and purchased (and planted) a new cherry tree, and a lemon tree! A lemon tree!!! I am so excited I can hardly wait to use those tasty lemons!
I am grateful for the fruit trees we have that produce, and the new ones that I hope will bring us many years of fruitful happiness.
