Henry Street Quince R.I.P

Last week a car sideswiped it after it jumped onto the sidewalk.

Today, it is flat. The quince is not more. I have taken notice of it ever since I moved to this neighbourhood 6 years ago, and was very fond of the sturdy, unlovely-in-winter little tree. It always redeemed itself in the spring, and I hoped for a fruit to ripen for me every fall.

What punishment for a tree killer?

  1. A gardening friend says tree killers should be deprived of the oxygen the trees provide.She reckons that would drain the gene pool significantly!

  2. Dinahmow's gardening friend has a good idea ... if only the oxygen deprivation could be so specifically directed. RIP Henry Street Quince ...
