There are so many questions for Amanda and Stacy the candlestick jumpers and this has left them quite discombobulated. They really have no idea how Luverne the Eucalyptus citriadora passed. Could have been the shock of moving to her new home or a million other reasons. We will probably never know.
Luverne was purchased with her sister, Shirley, at the Cold Spring Farmers’ Market. Luverne failed to thrive in her new living conditions. Despite her caretakers attempts to revive her, Luverne slowly but steadily lost her leaves and dried up. Her sister, Shirley, remains in good health.
Stacy and Amanda plan to put off the burial until spring which is when they will finally add Luvernes scant remains to their compost pile.
“Got not time for spreading roots, the time has come to be gone. And though our health we drank a thousand times, it’s time to ramble on.”
