We have a miracle in our garden.
Of course a garden is all about miracles,
mother earth's beauty and garden gnomes.
But this is a special miracle.
The one from the fastest growing tree alive.
Or at least, one of the fastest.
Just before we left to live in England.
I wondered around in a garden centre
thinking it would be nice to have a small tree in our garden patio.
Me, not the 'greenfinger' type
liked the silver green leaves of this baby tree!
'I'll adopt this poor tiny one!
It sure will be happy in my garden'.
After a year of absence we came back to cut a bit back in our patio.
My Lord, who gave this tree his DNA???
The miracle happened and the neighbors where worried.
The thing could easily collapse.
So every autumn, 'we' get up the ladder
(you know 'we' is of course not me, I give directions)
and make sure 'Thing' is not too tall.
Blessed by the unknown,
Thing is our very treasured beauty.
Thing is making our little extension (you see the doors and glass roof above)
a lot greener and happier.
Thing is my friend.
I wish we could have a Garden Koala,
maybe I should go back to the garden centre,
If you ask, I'm sure they will bring one in this greedy world!
And this little baby,
the one with the support,
she will win the sunflower contest.
The tallest beauty around.
I'll bet you!
