|My ABC Wednesday theme: The Mama and Her Authentic |
Green Thumbs. . .and Fingers
I may have told this story before, so if you heard it, that's okay, you can wander over to another post.
About 25 or so years ago, the First Husband gave the Mama a packet of seeds that he got in the mail from a Native American tribe. He nor I had any idea what kind of plant the seeds were. The Mama, being the Mama, planted them in the backyard to see what they may become.
It was shortly after the First Husband died that I noticed the tree. "What kind of tree is that?" I asked.
"I don't know," said the Mama.
"Where did you get it?"
"Frank gave me the seeds. He said they came from Indians. I call it a miracle tree," said the Mama. "There were only four seeds in the envelope."
So, the Miracle Tree is what I call it. Every fall, we prune it back, and every spring, its branches start spreading out so that by summer, it's full again, providing shade over the Mama's favorite resting spot.
It's ABC Wednesday, a meme began by Mrs. Denise Nesbitt and headed today by Roger Green and his helpers. Click here to read posts around today's letter M.
