Generally, they die no matter what you do, as the paint prevents them from photosynthesising. This particular one might be called a 'rescue tree' - we washed and wiped off all the paint we could, and placed it outside in the sun, the rain and the wind each summer for the last several years. Now it is growing to the point where our cathedral ceiling will not cope, and we may have to prune out the central shoots if we are to keep it alive rather than throw it away. Obviously, no choice there! We may have to raise a roof to continue to support it.

    Hi Chris, I did a similar thing with a ficus. It outgrew the house and I had to put it outside. Last winter I covered it as best I could in the cold weather and it came back more lovely than ever. This winter has been a different story since we dropped down to 19 degrees (a record) and while I double-covered it so far there has been no hint of green. I'm going to give it another month and keep watering it before I give up on it. We've had it 20 years.

    This is a great photo to lure digital enthusiasts into the possibilities of film - great realism, separation of the subject, and the film grain shines.

    That's the nicest thing anyone has ever said about one of my images in 40+ years

    Thank you, Charles.

    He's right, and you've also made me want to try Fomapan 100

    The clam digger stays close to shore as when the tide turns it comes in incredibly quickly; the tides here in the Minas Basin are the highest in the world, 45-55 feet.
