This ornamental cherry tree struggles to survive behind the supermarket and self-service laundry at Evergreen Shopping Center. The soil is cruelly compacted and dumped with broken concrete and waste lumber. Last year, a sack of what looked like plaster broke open and was left abandoned at its roots. Soon the rainy season will end, and no one will think to irrigate here. Whole limbs have blackened and fallen from it, and yet this little tree persists in living, offering its springtime beauty to this dreary, forsaken patch of earth.
