New York: Megan Karlen's Persimmon seeds sprouted

Megan Karlen with newly planted pot on May 12th at "Eat Clay or Die" exhibition curated by Susannah Tisue and Michele Quan in May at Greenwich House Pottery.
"I'm thrilled! I was worried that I had over watered it. I was fretting that I wasn't tender enough. And you know what? Through all of that worry the little seed just took its time and popped up through the soil when it was good and ready.

Here is a picture of the sprouting persimmon the morning I noticed it and then a picture with me and the sprouting sprout! What a joy to behold! Thanks again, so much, for such a great project!"

Congrats, Megan!!

"Our Hibaku seedling (Persimmon Tree) lives on the 51st floor of a Tribeca
highrise.
She lives with myself and my partner Jackie and she resides on one of the many window sills in the living room.
The poetry here is that here grows this little tree, who's genetics
survived the man-made calamity of Hiroshima, thriving on a sunny
windowsill in full view of Ground Zero.
Emerson said: Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.
That's something to learn from.
She is a joy to have."
