When I talk about plants and tree's, I tend to pepper my dialogue with old country Sicilian names for things that have modern American names. Small shoots from the base of a tree are often considered something that should be removed before they have drained nutrients from the main tree. In old country, Sicilian, they are called suckers because they suck the nutrients that the tree needs. This group of leaves are all suckers from a large tree next to a residential street in Santa Clarita, a city that wasn't there twenty years ago. It was a dusty little town with big hunks of desert sandy soil in between buildings. The pressure of the population in the San Fernando Valley ten miles over a pass between high hills caused a surge of development that ended with a brand new city, upscale for about half of the populations, and blue collar for the rest.
