Several years ago my husband pointed out a tiny red cedar seeding that had sprung up in a very poor place -- the corner of our front lawn. This area is very shady, has little grass, and doesn't get mowed very often, but it still was no place for another tree. Did I want to save it? I voted yes, because we had used red cedar for Christmas trees in Virginia when I was in my teens.

So the little tree got moved, and I forgot about it. Not long ago, while looking out the living room window, I noticed an evergreen that I could not remember. It was that cedar, moved to way down by the old cherry tree, and now grown now to about 18" tall and doing very well. After reading your story, I'm double glad we saved it.

Sharron -- have you ever written anything about the wild cherry? I love that tree.

How fun that you saved the tree!! It grows quickly, in no time it will be as tall as you are!

I haven't written about the wild cherry. I'll have to think about that.

Thanks for writing, it's good to hear from you.

Happy Holidays!
