Directly in the middle of our back lawn stood a skinny, scraggy evergreen tree. Alex and I wondered why anyone would plant a tree smack dab in the center of a yard. Worse yet, I think every neighbor hood cat used the tree well for a litter box. Not to mention the endless supply of unwanted pine needles everywhere! Maybe Gerda overheard us talking but one day she mentioned we could cut it down. And that is exactly what Alex did! Gerda explained that one of her first renters had bought a potted Christmas tree. Out of curiosity, once the season's festivities ended they planted the tree to see if it would grow. Well.......it did!
