Project 365: Day 24, avocado tree
This is an avocado tree that my Mom gave me a month or so ago. Mom's thumb is green, mine is not. When she gave me the tree, she told me that she had previously thought that it had died but suddenly there was growth. It was in a rather small pot, and you could see the roots spreading through the top of the soil. When I got home, I put into the largest pot I had (it's really huge; I wanted the tree to believe it had plenty of room to grow) --- and now! More growth! Three tiny leaves sprouting. This makes me so happy!
