I told my friend I would be mailing her some root cuttings from my cherry plum tree. She lives in N. Carolina. That way, she can plant the little root cutting and it will grow into a cherry plum tree in her yard.
She emailed me back and said, if I wanted, she could mail be some shells she picks up on the beach. I said please do.
I also explained to her that I use to have a lot of shells that I picked up from the beach in Florida. Over time, here in Tennessee, I scattered them in pots outside, around and in gardens on my property.
I went on to tell her that some day, people will think the ocean was once in West Tennessee. They'll dig up all these
shells and determine that the ocean was once here.
We both got a big laugh out of that.
