The Root of the Problem
At first, I was really angry. How dare that huge, wild tree just take over one of my prized planters? It had all the space and soil it needed - what nerve! But the more I thought about what had happened, the more awed I became. It all had obviously begun with one small root and one small hole. The root only sought that which roots always do - food and water. It was, after all, part of the underground support system for one giant tree and had important work to do. In the end, what totally blew me away was just how well it did it. If roots get awards, that one took top prize.
