Sun and shadows, and what's left of my avocado tree

The light today is mesmerizing, I had to make a photo of my window with the roller blinds turnend down. Sadly, this is what is left over from my avocado tree. I enjoy "gardening" in my kitchen - it's actually sticking some leftover avocado seeds in the earth, placing them in the sun and watering them a bit. I actually grew four of them, they were beautiful with many leaves, until the mushroom flies came and their offspring attacked them. I bought a bacteria called bacillus thuringensis that killed them and it seems they died because I didn't see the flies anymore. So let's hope the avocado trees will recover soon.
The father of a good friend of mine planted a tree like this in Syria, it became a huge tree and they harvested ripe avocados every year. Unbelievable, isn't it?
