A beautiful tree

We had this beautiful tree in our backyard. It is a ficus tree and provided a lot of shade on a hot sunny day. We had used this tree as part of the decor at my daughters wedding in 1980. So it was about 27 years old. By the way they are still married and have 4 beautiful boys. But it was beginning to lift up the cement on the patio so we had to have it taken out. Sad, it took 27 years to grow and 1 1/2 hours to cut it down. The third picture is of what my husband called his money tree. It was a schefflera. He got it when he opened his home office and always said as long it was healthy we would be making money. Well, it worked for about 25 years and now we are on Soc. Sec. and the poor tree is gone.
I do think I like the view outside alot better. I can see my roses and a few other things in the back yard.

I'm so sorry you lost your tree. There are so many memories that go along with it when you lose something like that.
