Early March : What’s that?
I looked twice at the familiar scene at the botanical garden and took a few seconds to register the sight.
Dormant. Resting. Not a single leave. An impulsive person might mark it to be chopped down. Fig wood? I’ve never heard of it being used for building or crafts. Would it be burned for fuel? Would it have a pleasing odor?
Thankfully– this tree is in a safe place and will reward the patient with signs of life. Be patient and stay tuned.
