Mine forever! So long to my darling Almond tree

She came into my life when I was but a wee one and she left in the summer of 2016.  To many she was just a tall almond tree with oodles of greenery hosting hundreds of birds.  This may have been true but to me she was so much more.

My darling almond tree stood so tall in the middle of the yard.  She gave shade and relief to so many who loved the coolness that she offered.  The birds loved her because she offered homes that were safe and secure from those predators such as nosy and curious cats. 

My darling almond tree represented something very special; she was the apple of my dad's eye.  For he was responsible for bringing her into our lives.  He got her when she was a youngster and by the time that he had passed on she had grown into a lovely specimen of over 20 feet!

I'll never forget the day when she was hewed down!  She fought feverishly to stay upright as the men struggled to bring her down and at times I could hear them expressing how strong she was. 

She is gone now but not forgotten!  She has gone to another life and has left me wistfully thinking about all of the joy and pleasure that she brought me.
