What'd you do? by runboy82 What'd you do? by runboy82
Straight out of deviantART Headquarters! We used to have a beautiful persimmon tree in the backyard. It became so overwhelmed with fruit that the top of it was actually bowed over and touching the ground. I observed $spyed trying to anchor the tree to our fig tree with some rope. $spot took it upon himself to assist with this grand undertaking. I said to +Waveswinger, "I don't know whether to help them or just watch." No more than ten seconds later, "SNAP!"

This is a pic of $spyed and $spot immediately after it happened. After seeing it, I ran outside and said, "Don't move, let me grab the camera."

So if you ever wanted a pic of $spyed looking and feeling like a dipsh*t, here it is. Nice shirt.

meh. I kind of got burnt out on persimmons. It was a bad combination of me liking to eat a balanced daily diet and "Hey look! Lots of free fruit!."

....rope....tit. XD

You know if you ever wanna hire a gardener, then I could be of assitance. =3

Seriously though I've been a garden assitant for three years and I've even served for the Queen of England.

Also Spyed should've used a support rod, or he could've used a stake and tree buckle, either would've worked.

Or he could've taken half the fruit off the tree and trimmed it a bit, then it wouldn't be so top heavy.

Also nice bird of paradise. ^^

That's the best part about the whole situation. There were so many things he could have and should have done besides what he decided to do.

Yeah, those birds of paradise are awesome. They're everywhere around LA.

Iseem to remember Angelo saying the tree would be ok with all the weight. And then this happened about two hours later. If my memory serves correct he was pretty sick at the time and his judgment may have been a little off.

awwww, poor tree. Nice picture, though, it's hilarious. but, Spyed, don't blame yourself for killing the tree, it was bound to snap in half under it's own weight, sooner or later. Anyway, have a nice day and I am going to add this to my favorites! :)
