Our BEAUTIFUL bougainvillea tree in our sweet, cozy, lush and green courtyard caught some sort of “worm” (?) and is in a bad way. It’s been shedding leaves like crazy for the past several weeks.
We chose to ignore the problem thinking that perhaps it was just going through it’s change of “season” (autumn) a bit earlier than normal; however it appears that the shedding of the leaves were really our trees’ tears of pain. That we were ignoring.
The tree is really TWO trees and has GOT to be at least 50 years old or so.
And now, it looks like this. (Gasp. I know, it’s awful.) Oh, and they said it just needed to be “trimmed.”
Maybe, “trimmed” means something different here?
I think I’m going to throw up.
Positive note: I guess the birds will no longer have anywhere to live…
As I was leaving for work this morning they were cutting down the once-beautiful part of the tree that cascaded over the side of the courtyard wall… (See the man up there?)
More pics to come.
