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.
