The people Mark works with in his chemistry lab all got together and bought us a tree, rather than flowers, when we got back from the US. We have now named it the "Ducky Tree" and last weekend Mark surprised me while I was napping and planted it in our backyard! Now every time we look at it, we can think of Ducky! And, even better, it's a fruit tree (feijoa), so we can now grow our own fruit (although I have a feeling it might not grow fruit for quite a while). It's just a baby tree right now, maybe 3.5 or 4 feet tall, but hopefully it will grow!! Please excuse the ridiculously long grass, we haven't mowed it in, well, a month maybe? Oops.
