See this tree on the left that forms a sort of canopy over the walkway? It grew completely naturally. N trimmed the top so that it wouldn’t obscure the flag but everything else happened by itself.
We used to have a small bush there that got eaten by bugs while we were on vacation. We removed the sad, blackened stump, and started debating what to plant in this spot. I proposed a big, wild specimen. N wanted a small, neat plant. While the discussion continued, this tree grew, and now I adore it. I particularly like that it’s a weed.
If anybody knows the name of this plant, please let me know.
