This tree was dead, but yet it still looked as if its dead branches were trying to search for the last hope of finding water to sprout again.
its a very old tree and these branches just looked very very eerie.
you can see that its so dry, its wishing for the drought to be over…
i think its to late for this old beauty..our bush is slowly dying :
