We have a small orchard area adjoining the parking lot and when I glanced over to admire the beautiful blooming trees I couldn't believe what I saw! One of the large flowering tees was laying sideways on the ground! There had been no heavy winds or thunderstorms so my first thought was that it was vandalism. I forgot going anywhere and immediately walked out to look at it more closely and saw that the inside of the trunk was all dry rot where it had split and the weight of the tree had taken it down. It was amazing that it had continued to bloom so completely and beautifully with no outside sign of any decay. So sad for words - so sad. The entire tree was in bloom and the flowers were so perfect and beautiful.
