Cedar Seedling


Can you see it? Look closely, left of the sign. It is a lonely cedar seedling. This orphan seedling has been growing slowly but steadily for at least two years in my front landscape bed.

Where did you come from? There are no cedars anywhere on our block. I have looked for your parents in the yards of the neighborhood, but there is no sign of a cedar. Did a bird leave you behind as payment for the time spent living in the nearby Alberta spruce? Or did you blow in with wild winds during a storm?

Sadly, your time is up. This decision was not made lightly, but you do not fit into the scheme of the planned landscape.  Today you have been plucked from the ground and now reside with the liriope clippings. Sorry.
