My dear friend from Brooklyn found out she was pregnant while in India, visiting her father. He suggested it was best to plant a tree to signify roots, growth, and birth. They planted a chikoo tree for baby chikoo. Isn't that the sweetest idea? I think it would also be great for anyone moving to a new home or a new city, too. Or maybe someone getting married or starting school. Plant something. Grow some roots.
Tomorrow I'll be planting my Hen & Chicks Succulents in my window boxes, for good things to come. The gardener at the NY Botanical Gardens said they are hearty & they multiply. :)
Have you ever planted something for a special reason?
