New York: Megan Karlan's recent update on her Persimmon

"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."
