Avacado leaves.

By Aldo Panzieri
The avocado tree behind our apartment house is thirty feet tall. Since these trees only grow only one or two inches a year, it might seem logical to assume it's as old as our apartment house which is ninety nine years old. The tree was so over grown with the weight of branches and leaves which hadn't been trimmed in a century. Last month, the land lord had the tree trimmed to with in an inch of it's life.

Avocado leaves are usually dark green and rather drab. The new growth of leaves are tiny and more colorful than a mob of dancers at the Ash Wednesday festival in New Orleans.

These leaves are seldom larger than an inch long, and a dozen of them could fit in a tea cup.

What gorgeous foliage.
You might consider cloning over the very bright spot in the upper left to make this even more perfect.
It must be a venerable old tree, does it produce fruit?
I hope it benefits from the trimming.
