A shoot shall come forth…!

You may remember that I blogged a few months ago about the Cotoneaster tree that they cut down in “my” courtyard outside my office at work.

As a small act of protest, I took one of the branches and stuck it in the ground with a sign reading “RIP Tree”.

Well, you could have knocked us all down with a feather when one of my co-workers pointed out the the “stick” had sprouted! The Tree Lives!

    Which is why it is a noxious weed. (Just ask the Krohns about the invasion of such plants from the property next door. And I am forever digging up seedlings from our neighbours. Get the gardeners to put in something attractive.
