A volunteer gift

A number of years ago this crab seedling showed up at my curb...literally next to cement curb in front of a dying city maple. It not only survived the crew cutting the maple down but the stump grinding that followed as well. With that will to live, I moved it away from the curb to see what would become of it. Well, its now a reliable bloomer with a nice candelabra shape and has only required a bit of pruning to keep it away from the sidewalk and out of the road. Not bad for a curb crab.
