Photo Advent Calendar, Day 4: Partridge in a pear tree (So Cal edition)

This is the avocado tree The Husband has begged forth from the seed of a store-bought avocado. It used to live on the patio, but when it got so cold last week, we took it inside. We've since been trying to get rid of the aphids (or whatever bugs those are) that befell it out there, so when I found a ladybug sitting on one of our dinding room chairs, I decided it was divine intervention for the little tree and promptly adopted it. Let's hope this symbiosis will work out for the better of both the would-be partridge and the would-be pear tree.

It's a Christmas miracle!

(and I can't believe you got a tree out of an avocado pitt!)
