20 December: Arbor Day

( ... DecPhotoAdvent ... )

My sister sent me a Christmas present. I'm surprised it made it through the California Ag inspectors.

It might seem an odd present for a homeless man, but it is timely because when I got back from my Boston trip, I found that the plant I've been carting around in my car had died.

It's a shame. I've had that plant since 1991. It belonged to the office I worked in in Annapolis and I rescued it when the office closed down. It survived me being away in Scotland for two years and the trip across the country, but it didn't deal with being in a cold car for a week at the airport parking lot.
