Cedar in Vintage Stump Pottery Vase

Cedar in Vintage Stump Pottery Vase

This little cedar has dwelt happily in a vintage pottery stump vase since I found it outside in autumn of 2014.  Last Christmas it lived on the mantle of the sunroom as a natural holiday tree.  Soft garden moss and tiny cones nestle around its base.  I found another growing in the rocks around our foundation and will transplant it to a roomy pot to live on my back porch.  This fall it will come inside as well and live the fairytale life of a Christmas tree with its older cousin.  Oh the serendipitous delights of nature’s gifts.
