Avocado Lives

We thought we lost it.

We had a couple of frosts this winter and after each frost more leaves turned brown. Then, they started to drop. After the big wind in February most of the leaves were gone and we had this stick that used to be a tree. OK, a very skinny tree, but considering it started as a refugee from a bowl of guacamole it was doing fine, just fine.

Now, lookie, lookie! Leetle green leaves!

I hope it grows lots and lots of leaves this summer. Millions and billions of leaves!

Do you know what you call a tree with 6.02 x 10 23 leaves?

An Avogadro.
