Then last weekend it rained. It rained for 3 days straight! We don't get that too often here.
Now my big beautiful blooming mesquite looks like this!!
Is this not the most bizarre thing you have seen in your life? Growing up in Indiana I saw trees succumb to the weight of ice and/or snow, but water?!
You can see the "bend" in the branches.
This picture really shows how much that rather large branch has bent!
If any of my fellow bloggers have seen such a thing please let me know. I haven't done a thing to the tree yet, but I can't imagine that the branches will dry out and just pop back up. I am not even sure that the tree will survive this to be honest.
Maybe this is a metaphor for my life?
"Blessed are the hearts that can bend; they shall never be broken." ~ Albert Camus
