Delaware County, Pennsylvania Real Estate Blog: Hanging On By A Thread

Hanging On By A Thread

I drive by this tree pretty often.  It has been losing limbs for a few years now.  There is even a hole in the trunk.  Yet each year the parts that are alive still put out leaves and make it through another season.  It looks like it is hanging on by a thread, but apparently not, since it made it through this winter with four Nor'easters.

To me, Nature keeps reminding us to hang on and give our all no matter the circumstances.

Withstands storms and time - trees are pretty wonderful examples of strength aren't they? Thanks for sharing this Gloria. D

Thank you Sheila Anderson .  It is a good reminder for sure.  Happy Easter to you also!

Myrl Jeffcoat I just had to get it in a photo before it is gone.  It has buds on it!!

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD   Yes and very giving.  Shel Silverstein's the "Giving Tree" is a wonderful homage to trees. 

Happy Spring!

The urge to live is a pretty powerful thing!  That tree looks very pathetic now, but I guess it will look better once it gets some leaves.
