Our Norway Spruce

Our Norway Spruce is resting in peace.  It was taken down on July 26. The number of its rings shows that it was about 120 years old and the spacing of the rings shows that it suffered, in the past 15 years, from an abundance of water and after that from drought.  

So we now reflect on this experience of our environment, of too much and of too little.

Wisdom is a Tree of Life for all who embrace her (Proverbs 3,18).
