A Tree for Tuesday

A few weeks ago, my husband and I wandered the Bluegrass and ended up picnicking at the Italianate home of Cassius Clay (a most interesting resident of the Commonwealth). There, warding off ne’er-do-wells, was this sign:

Richard Horan, author of Seeds, and naturalist John Muir would have been proud. I wish the sign had given us a clue about the age and history of the evergreen, but I was happy just to know that someone cared about it.
