Ah, you've reminded me of my "Colorado bonsai" that I mentioned and pictured at the end, here: https://piedtype.com/2010/08/23/if-a-tree-falls/ And I'm delighted to say that as of a couple of months ago, it is still there. No bigger, but still hanging in there. It's on the east side of Highway 7 just south of the intersection with Hwy 72.

I'm also reminded of D.H. Lawrence: “I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself. A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself.”


Thank you for this message of hope for the New Year. Hang on little tomato. Keep trying, it is what we are meant to do.

Susan, happy to hear that you share my feelings about these resilient trees and that your tree endures. I will have to check it out on my next drive up the canyon. The D.H. Lawrence quote is inspirational--a good lesson for all of us.
