The tenacious rule-of-thirds tree
Don’t give up
’cause you have friends
Don’t give up
You’re not beaten yet
Don’t give up
I know you can make it good
- Peter Gabriel

There's this tree a few km from my house on a country road that caught my eye a few times last year when I was on a bike ride. The first time I noticed it was on April 30, 2016 after a particularly tough winter; nothing was growing nor turning green, especially this tree. Six months later on October 30 I was a little surprised to see it still there. Needless to say, it's condition hadn't changed much.

No hope | 121/366
I was right | 304/366

Here it is again, after another nasty winter. More or less unchanged... still dead, and still hanging on. I'll have to visit it again in October...
