What, No Partridge?

October 15th, 2005

True to her word, the owner of our building has replaced the late, lamented magnolia tree outside our window with a transplanted sapling. We are told that it's a flowering pear tree, which sounds quite festive. The tree itself looks a little forlorn, planted in the middle of an area that had been taken up by the massive root system of its once-mighty predecessor. Plus, its little branches are timidly pointing skyward, as if beseeching the sky for more sun to alleviate its puniness (or maybe that's just how they tied up its branches when they transported it?).

In any case, we urban renters welcome our new, organic co-tenant into our otherwise paved-over backyard. May it flower in good health for many rent-controlled years to come!

    Many happy years watchig the developement of your new tree. If it’s like one that I once had, it’s leaves will turn bright yellow in the Fall and make for a festive Autumn as well as fragrant Spring!
