Guess what? They are back, and there are more of them now that there were before. Every little piece of root that was left in the ground has sprouted a new tree creating quite a thicket. I fear they will not be going away any time soon. One bonus will be many seedling trees which I will attempt to plant somewhere else outside the walls. I already have one that came from a seed. It is planted behind the pool garden. Unfortunately it is looking crispy brown this year not having had any water all summer. I think I may have its replacement.
FIRST BLUEBIRD EVER!
