Avocado: Not blooming where it was planted

Visiting the plant center…
What ails thee?
Haas: The avocado shriveled. I have a photo.
Nurseryman (drawing a finger over the print): Maybe a fungus. Possibly caused by overwatering?
Haas: Might have.
Nurseryman: They like a well-drained soil.
Haas: I planted it three years ago. It did well, but suddenly, this month, all the leaves went black.
Nurseryman: Don’t like to say this, but it doesn’t look like he’s going to make it. 😞

The tree tried. To bloom where it was planted. But not everyone makes it. A time might come when all the help and intervention you can give it cannot rescue an endangered individual. Endurance is shadowed by acceptance. 🌳
