The witch that killed a tree

Posted by on Jun 10, 2013 in |

I had seen a really cool decoration of a witch that crashed into a tree. So, as there was a handy tree in my front yard, I got a broom, and pushed it between two branches, until it was steady. Then I got some of my kids’ old clothes, stuffed them with plastic bags, attached some shoes and another bag for a head, and put a black witches hat on it. And it looked really good – like a witch had flown and crashed into the tree.
It got lots of admiration on Halloween. But the scary thing was that the tree started to die after that. The leaves went brown, branches started to die, and eventually it was so unsafe I had to get it cut down. To this day it seems a strange coincidence that it only started to die after I put the witch in it.
