I showed up at 9:30, for a memorial service... for a tree.
Osmanthus Life Celebration
Then we all got cups of tea and drank the traditional Chinese toast for departed loved ones - to heaven, to the earth, and to the ... tree. (Actually, you're supposed to pour the tea out on the ground, but we drank it, rather than wasting it.)
The tree will be removed tomorrow, with a replacement showing up on Monday morning. A smaller tree, but it will still need a crane to get it in.
Then I stuck around for Kalina's sketchcrawl in the garden.
