I called on Bob, the gardener who did our landscaping last year, to rescue my little tree. So, here it is, properly staked. Please don't tell the MM about my pathetic attempt with those bits of wood and string. He says I can only tie 'picky knots' which is probably why the tree fell over again yesterday. Bob says I'll have to wait to see if the roots were damaged, so there is still a chance I may lose the tree. For the moment, though, it can withstand the wind and rain which is just as well because I may be needing all the timber I can find soon to build me an ark.
