I Planted a Tree

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 58 People

    In Grade School

    I planted a fir tree in my backyard.  The thing grew like a weed and was soon taking up a good portion of the yard.  It's still there and still going strong after over 40 years.  I'm still going strong but 3,000 miles away from my tree.
