the pecan tree
After waiting for something like 8 years, after planing and re-planing for around 2.5 years we finally seem to get closer to our new home.
Yesterday we cut our pecan tree. We love this tree.
It gives a lot of shadow in the hot and long summers and a lot of nuts (I hardly ever need to buy nuts). The kids climb on it, we have a tire-swing on it, we have huge piles of leaves in autumn and jump into them.
We will tear down our side of the building and build new- but we wanted to keep the tree.
Now it looks empty and "naked"- but the tree will grow back.
Right now we still live in the lower apartment of this building (where the small roof is over the entrance and the wooden play-hut). In around 3 weeks we will move out so we can start to build. And then we finally will have a more space.
