Kerchiefs in a Tree
It was my dream to obtain a specimen of a unique tree species, Davidia involucrata, whose blossom looks like white handkerchiefs scattered among its branches. I planted it and when it came into flower many years later, I rejoiced like a small child, till the first slight frost came and it froze. But after some time, what a surprise! It grew again out of that frozen root and is now about four metres tall. Who knows, perhaps I’ll see it bloom again?
