She bought a palm tree with her husband on their honeymoon. The tree was never a symbol of their undying love for each other. It was just a tree. Her husband planted the tree when they returned home. She never watered the tree or gave it much thought. The marriage lasted 3 years. She remained at the home they had once shared as did the tree. Although the climate was thought to be too cold for the tree to survive in, it did and grew with each passing year. When she did take the time to look at the tree she couldn’t believe that it had once fit into the backseat of her car.
She eventually went insane because the world around her made sense.
