Farewell, sweet plum tree!

Meanwhile, I dug up this plum tree, because it really wasn't thriving in its mostly-shady position. I found a $2 clearout kolkwitzia amabilis ("Dream Catcher" beauty bush) and stuck it in the spot instead. And I supposedly Freecycled the plum tree, but now it looks like the recipient is not going to show up.

Her exact words: "If you could send an address, I'll try to get there Thursday a.n., or pm. latest."


My reply, because I've been burned so many times lately: "If it's still here by 6 p.m. Thursday and I haven't heard from you, I will have to reoffer. Hate hate HATE to have to say that, but I have had so many inconsiderate no-shows lately. :-((in other words, if you can't make it, just let me know and I can happily reschedule within reason)"

And, of course, now it's 3:30, and it's raining. Who wants to take the TTC to pick up a tiny plum tree in the rain? Who am I kidding??? She's not going to show. And meanwhile, I have this dying little tree in a pot!!! Argh.

I'd better go offer it on Craigslist so the poor tree doesn't have to suffer for some dippy lady's inconsiderate behaviour.
