When we first moved into this house, one of the reasons we did was because of a beautiful old oak that stood in the front yard. Then, for a lot of reasons having nothing to do with the house, we decided to uproot and put the house on the market. Apparently the oak decided to uproot too, or rather a wet June followed by a severe thunderstorm decided for it.
We were really fond of that tree. We originally moved into the house in December of ’98 and Carol named the place Winter Oak in its honor. It’ll just be a house once we’re gone. Winter Oak has already left.
May you find a replacement for Winter Oak that is as satisfactory as your Winter Oaks have been.
Be sure to plant a tree before you leave. Since we moved in here, we have planted 5 fruit trees and 10 Leland Cypress. There are six live oaks here, not sure if they are the native varient or more likely the type from the East.
