My first fig series was posted in July of 2009. My friend Sara has the most amazing fig tree in her back yard and she lets me cut branches from it. In 2009, the branches rooted so quickly in vases of water.
This year, the new cuttings didn't fare so well. Can't believe it's now 2011 (don't blink, your life is passing you by). I recently had to throw away most of the cuttings but this little guy keeps hanging on – it sprouted two tiny, lovely leaves just before Christmas. Sara's response was, "There is life after death my dear. Hang on."
