When David and I got married six years ago, my good friend Caroline (who invited David to the party where we met in 1971) got us a tree. She didn’t physically give us the tree, but adopted it in our honor to be planted near the river downtown. In the first couple of years after our wedding, we regularly visited this tree, a Bald Cypress, and then not much after that until recently. Last week, it was hard to be sure which of two trees was “ours.” I thought they would be taller by now. Maybe the hurricanes slowed their growth or gave them a hard time. But they looked fuller and healthier than before. Hopefully they have deep roots. Regardless, I’m giving my love to these city trees.
