Wendy's life

This blog has been created as a celebration of the life of Wendy Margaret Cronin (born 16 October 1944 and died 10 October 2007). The blog owner (me) is Steve McRobb (aka Macro) - I was Wendy's partner and then husband for almost 30 years. To add comments or a post, you must be an invited friend or family member - email me if you knew Wendy and would like to join.

More trouble at t' tree

My earlier optimism was sadly misplaced.  The second tree has died, presumably from the same cause as the first.  I've known this for a while, but only just got round to writing this post.

If you visit after New Year 2011, you may find that there is no tree there at all.  That will be because it has been removed for tests and analysis.  Once we know what killed it (currently the leading explanation is honey fungus) we can decide what to do next. The obvious choices are:
  1. a different spot a few metres away; 
  2. a different kind of tree that is immune to the illness.  
I'll keep you posted.
