A year of growth

In fall 2009, I received a olive tree sapling at an ecology rally. I took it home and planted it.

At Christmastime last year, the tree was still small and fragile. I often decorate my houseplants, but it didn't seem like it could withstand more than a little tinsel.

But this year it could withstand a lot more.

I hope your year has been good, too.
