Dawn Redwood and Flowering Plum

My Dawn Redwood lives and grows in Western Massachusetts. I was told thatliving beside me is an ancient species, sometimes called " a living fossil." One can't help but feel proud in its presence. Its movements swanlike, gliding like a woman in a kimono waving across the sky. Its leaves soft and silky to touch. The flowering plum is a great contrast to this pyramid of wondrous summer green.
