A shipment of six dwarf fruit trees arrived on Friday: Asian and Bartlett pears, Bing and Black Tartarian sweet cherries, Elberta peach, and Methley plum. I turned a lovely sunny spot of the yard, next to the vegetable garden and driveway, into a fruit orchard.
Inga's placenta has been lurking in the depths of our freezer, and it was time to plant her tree of life.I'd like to say there was some deep symbolism behind which fruit tree the placenta went underneath. But honestly, I decided that I really liked dark sweet cherries and so under the Black Tartarian it went!
Zari helped me dig the holes. She wanted to touch the (still frozen) placenta and umbilical cord before the burial.
Zari's placenta went underneath a climbing rose. Dio's went under a rose tree. Now that I've branched out to fruit trees, I wonder what type of plant the next placenta will nourish.
Do you still have a placenta in your freezer? What are your plans for it?
